chocolat

these vintage ads really amused me. you can almost imagine the dudes saying, “come on boys, this chocolate isn’t going to carry itself!” (in french)

i’ve watched this advert a multitude of times, but decided to share anyway for those of you who might not have seen it yet – it’s been all over the sa blogosphere (for good reason). it’s an ad for the south african investment firm, allan gray. read the background story & making of over at king james and pay close attention when the dust clears at the end of the ad, that’s actual james dean right there : )
