Have we seen this Molson Dry spot before?

Leaders from Glossier, Shopify, Mastercard and more will take the stage at Brandweek to share what strategies set them apart and how they incorporate the most valued emerging trends. Register to join us this September 23–26 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Cossette's "Run" spot for Molson Dry is cinematic and memorable, but that doesn't necessarily make it a great commercial. It mixes ideas from Apple's epic "1984" (athletic chick smashing the image of Big Brother on a video screen) and American Gladiators (the rolling orb) with cliched Nike-style go-go enthusiasm and the visual elan of every big-budget sci-fi flick of the past 20 years. Actually, the ad looks spectacular, and I could forgive the borrowing if the payoff met my expectations.
