Ad of the Day: Cooks Cut Loose in Lurpak's Sizzling New Food Porn

Butter brand gets jazzy with W+K

Another masterpiece of choreography

Cooking with Lurpak is a full body-and-soul experience.

A new ad from Wieden + Kennedy London continues the butter brand's tradition of quick-cut, hi-res food porn. In the voiceover, Rutger Hauer raps about cutting loose, while a sizzling jazz soundtrack crescendoes and a series of home cooks work themselves up into spiritual frenzy, dancing while they fly.



Titled "Freestyle," it is, like the agency's past work for Lurpak, gorgeously shot (this time by MJZ director Juan Cabral—with stunning colors, produce that looks so good it's unreal, and a surprising amount of action, including a healthy dash of psychedelia.

It's also trying pretty hard—some might say too hard—to be exciting. But the build and pacing are perfectly arced, and anyone who loves cooking as a form of self-expression seems likely to particularly appreciate it.

The less ambitious can just slather some butter on their toast.
