The ICA follows up last
week's "The Art and Technique of the American Commercial" with "Award-Winning British Commercials 2010". If you've occasionally been amused by
"clever" commercials from the best of the American advertising industry (love
those Superbowl ads!), then you'll be surprised at the level of wit and snark
the Brits convey while selling shit. This annual short compilation is always a
highlight of the film season, and it will give you an idea of what beer spots
would be like if it weren't for that pesky American Revolution.
