Dubstep Sensation Marquese Scott Dances For Peugeot
We're not usually fans of the forced application of cultural trends onto advertising but we really like this new Initials Marketing-created, Rubber Republic-produced work for Peugeot. The one take, one shot four minute video opens on an empty parking garage. We then see 29 year old dubstepper Marquese Scott, aka Nonstop, grooving to Rudimental ft. John Newman's Feel The Love.
The camera follows Scott and slowly pans 360 degrees around the garage. Part way through, we catch a glimpse of the Peugeot 208. The panning ends on a wall which reads, "Let Your Body Drive," the name of the campaign.
Wonderful work. It's not overly commercial. It freely highlights Scott's skills as well as subtly delivers a commercial message. The work may never achieve the 42 million views Scott's famed Pumped Up Kicks video received but it's got over 25,000 views in one day. Not bad.
