Pastels Are the New Black for These Badass Bikers

Editor's Pick

"Sons of Anarchy" meets the British seaside in this spot for U.K. retailer Carphone Warehouse, promoting its range of smartphone colors in a way that shows it's not just Apple that can do all the colors of a rainbow. The ad, by CHI & Partners and directed by Hobby Film's Magnus Renfors, sees a gang of bikers, clad in bright pastels, invade a grey coastal town in winter. Never have pastels looked so badass.

Alongside the ad, Carphone Warehouse is running a competition on its social channels under the hashtag #colourinvasion, giving customers the chance to win a color handset every day for two weeks.
