One Trip Rekindles Those Old Flames

Published on Feb 06, 2015

Editor's Pick

This nostalgic spot for Icelandic Air from Islenska BBDO and directed by Runar Ingi juxtaposes hectic scenes of a married couple's life -- rife with the mishaps and adventures made possible only by kids -- with clips from their more romantic past.

With the help of Icelandair, the couple revisits a favorite old hangout in Stockholm. Although it's no longer as they remembered it, the trip helps turn the pair back into the lovey-dovies they once were. A swingy track, intimate yet cinematic shooting and clever editing make for a well-told tale.
