The Star: There Will Be Stories

The Jungle gets the lounge treatment.

Published on

Editor's Pick

Guns-n-Roses' "Welcome the Jungle" gets a cheesy new vibe in this spot for The Star out of Monkeys. In the film directed by Revolver's Steve Rogers, a leisure suited-lounge singer plays a piano cover of the classic rock track as a casino world unfolds around him. It's the first element of a new "There Will be Stories" campaign to showcase The Star as an entertainment destination. It's a fine execution, but watching it, we can't help but wonder whatthis sophisticated lounge act from a few years back could add to the show.
