Making up the films cast list are: Hollywood actor Jude Law, McLaren Formula 1 racing driver Jenson Button, US alternative rock band OK Go, Filipino mountain climber Romi Garduce, artists Haas & Hahn, Mexican fashion model Montserrat Oliver, Swedish engineer and high-speed motorcyclist Eva Hakansson, Swedish bar manager and forager Emil Areng, JW’s master blender Dr. Jim Beveridge and retired two-time F1 champ, Mika Häkkinen. Not a bad collection of names for a 90-second ad.
The video was directed by Max Malkin and was uploaded to Johnnie Walker’s official YouTube channel on the 16th of September, 2015. The main advert begins with Jude Law saying: ‘Blood, sweat, and tears will get you there, but joy will take you further.’
Johnnie Walker is a brand of Scotch whisky and these latest commercials promote the companies ‘Red Label’, ‘Black Label’ and ‘Blue Label’ varieties.
