Vodafone: “Be Unlimited” - 60s

After over two years' worth of cringe, Vodafone have wisely ditched Martin Freeman as their spokesperson and gone in a very different direction with their latest campaign. Coinciding with the launch of its 5G network, the brand take a more artful approach when interpreting what "living unlimited" could look like.

Directors Si & Ad evoke a wonderful sense of whimsy here, as the stylish film sees a central character twirl her way through the day as if she, quite literally, contained multitudes. Holly Blakey's choreography, meanwhile, is again a treat to watch.

Such histrionics won't solve the brand's ongoing customer service woes overnight, however, while this sector's data arms race means there is a risk of ‘unlimited fatigue' settling in any week now.
