Swords: Considerably Less Scary in a Landrover

By Matt Van Hoven 

“You’ll feel safe inside.”

Young & Rubicam New York sends this Landrover spot, with love, and a little HR-themed sword humor. Credits after the jump.

I feel bad for the sound designer on this project, Henry Boy. It must feel derogatory any time someone refers to him solely by his last name. Examples:

-Gruff high school coach: Hey Boy, get your ass on the field.
-Possibly racist DMV employee: Boy, move to the left.

I’m sure everyone calls him boytoy or something like that. Poor dude, someone buy him a Man beer.
