Barclays’ spot depicts ‘fake’ new world

Barclays' "Fake" ad via Venables Bell & Partners has an Omega Man
quality to it that, oddly enough, doesn't detract from its strength as a visual
metaphor. Good pacing, too. The situation expands and builds to a sensible
conclusion without sacrificing brand credibility for a stupid joke or a
dull flash of randomness. The only loose thread is what he'd been drinking; due
to the amount of hallucinated mannequins, we're guessing it was absinthe or
mead.
