The Homestead is a House of Cards, Say Radiohead and Shelter
Two days ago we mentioned Radiohead was donating one of its songs to a homeless shelter. Last night we got the footage.
The song is Videotape from In Rainbows, but the ad itself is called "House of Cards" -- the name of another In Rainbows track. Only the melody is used, adding an urgent tempo to a panning shot of a city, where a number of homes and skyscrapers are composed of cards that slowly begin to plummet.
Provocative, visually interesting, not too pushy. Good stuff by Leo Burnett. Other pro bono mentionables include Dom and Nic from Outsider, which shot the ad; Framestore for post-production; and actress Samantha Morton, who did the voiceover at the end and has apparently also been homeless.
