This sumptuous piece for Samsung’s new Ultra High Definition telly box certainly knows how to strike a pose. The music is full of corporate bombast and the VO is affectedly breathy and feeble but never mind all that: it’s the visual side of things that matters – and it delivers lavishly. Directed by Floria Sigismondi, the spot conveys a sense of the experience of watching UHD on a curved screen and makes us covet a Samsung of our own.
