In the months and weeks leading up to Cannes, we see a lot of great work appearing across all media.

enjoyed the APPLE ad.

Quite like the idea of our young guy at the end busily sweeping up all the cut hair into something......camera pulls back - he has swept it into the apple logo.....then fade to a graphic visual of the apple logo.

A fun ad however.
