Renault: “The Getaway” - 50s

Renault pay homage (or borrow the keys to) Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Drive' as the brand continue their sponsorship of Premier League football on Sky. Taking Ryan Gosling's place in the driver's seat is former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry, and you can bet he's got a pair of fancy driving gloves for the occasion.

Despite Henry's top-flight cachet, it's directing duo thirtytwo's full-throttle visuals that catch the eye. Each ident delivers bang for their buck as the yellow Megane tears through the streets carrying a footie-obsessed family - which isn't a million miles off Nissan's run as sponsors.
