National Geographic: King Tut - Cynthia

Choose carefully.

Published on

Editor's Pick

Carmichael Lynch found some real life "collectors" to star in these spots and print ads promoting National Geographic's exhibit Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharoahs. The campaign asks some colorful characters, "What would you bring to the afterlife?" and hilariously documents them in the throes of, at times, difficult decision making. The spots were shot by JJ Adler of Tool and Shawn Michienzi, of SaFProductions, who also photographed the gorgeous accompanying print ads.
