Black Series

So yeah, upon the initial reviewing of the directional scripts, I had the impression was that Djarum was unveiling their new spicy Southeast Asian chewing gum label celebrating sriracha fiery feels and gasolina lifestyle. Well, it turns out that tobacco product marketing in Indonesia is just as indirectly confusing (and sometimes awkward) as any other legal drug stateside such as boner pills or pain suppressants. However, these pair of spots to lead their Black Series steez actually came out kinda fresh and certainly had a few folks poppin and lockin' in Jakarta & Bali. Super.



In all honesty, this project was actually kinda lit up and pretty fun, as the initial process consisted of us ping-ponging impromptu dance and Tai-Chi skills to articulate the moves and laser interactions within the neon netherworld. It looked way more like us replicating a scene from Beavis & Butthead, but fortunately for us, the exceptionally talented dancers here in the spots along with the post production folks in the studios, made it come to life and look far more impressive. Thank you guys. Thank you.
