Why I Dig Bond

Recently I was asked why I am so interested in a film that is not in the period asthetic of the fifties and sixties.

That is a good question, infact some might argue that the only good Bond is Connery and perhaps they are right.

But here’s the deal. I dig the concept of Bond, I’ve always like the concept of the Lounge Lothario spy, the man who dresses well, drives

nice cars and has a high degree of cool that is combined with a player mentality of winning friends and taking chances in life.

To me, the Bond franchise has kept this tradition alive through out the 24 films.

The Bond of today is just as cool as sixties Bond, but hey that’s just me.

Sure Bond has been updated, he doesn’t smoke, doesn’t sleep around as much as he did, but I will always by a ticket to the Bond show!

Jude Law Races To Monaco In A Vintage Car

Johnnie Walker Blue Label has followed up last year’s stylish branded film, Gentleman’s Wager, with a second act, again starring Jude Law and Giancarlo Giannini.

See the Video Here

The first film saw Law bet he could win Giannini’s yacht, and in the new 11-minute film, after another wager set in Giannini’s beautiful Italian palazzo, he sets out to win a vintage car in an old-fashioned road race to Monaco. On the way he meets a beautiful woman, played by Chinese actress Zhao Wei, breaks down several times, and of course, gets there with moments to spare. Formula 1 heroes Mika Häkkinen and Jenson Button also appear in cameos.

Law looks debonair throughout, even when covered in engine oil — could this be an extended audition tape for Bond? — and the film, once again directed by Jake Scott through RSA, is gorgeously shot in the world of the super-rich. While a ten-plus minute piece of content is surely a gamble for any brand, in this case the wager pays off.
