It was fun while it lasted. Heck, it’s STILL fun! Turns out that the ad was just a spec and not in any way commissioned or condoned by the makers of SPRITE. The ad was done by New York City-based director Max Issacson.
John Jones IV, the gentleman who appears in the “commercial” stated:
“The funny thing is, it’s a spec commercial–it’s not even real.”
Well, you certainly got my attention. And the attention of many others! Despite everything going on in the world, my post yesterday showcasing the ad turned out to be one of my busiest ever.
I guess the old saying that sex sells is still as true as ever.
Though the vid was pulled from youtube, as of this writing, it can be seen HERE.
