Tony Scott’s Final Commercial, for BBDO and Diet Mountain Dew

Director shot hundreds of ads through RSA Films

Tony Scott, who committed suicide on Sunday at age 68, directed hundreds of ads—many of them award winners—through RSA Films, his and brother Ridley's commercial production company. Here's his final spot, via BBDO for Diet Mountain Dew, released earlier this month. It features Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban trying to tempt a diehard Diet Dew fan with untold riches if he'll just give him the last bottle at a convenience store. Features a classic Scott image of a speedboat ripping through the water. RIP, Tony. See a bunch more of his ads, including some classics, over at the RSA website. Credits after the jump.
