It's the Friday video post! Retro Smirnoff Ad

As a slacker student, I spent many hours watching films at the local fleapit (before multiplexes were everywhere).

During my entire time at Uni, they played this ad before the start of the film.

Every. Single. Time.

Seriously – over a period of three years! (I don't know why, but I guess it's because it cost so much to make).

I used to completely and utterly loathe this ad. It drove me crazy everytime they showed it ... but now I can watch it with a renewed appreciation for the technical brilliance. Remember – this came out over five years before the Matrix.

That's pretty impressive.
