"To demonstrate the precise control of Touch2O Technology, Delta Faucet developed a custom 'drum kit' along with the Chicago-based percussionist and composer Glenn Kotche, best known for his involvement in the band Wilco. In this 30-second TV commercial, Glenn 'plays' the touch faucets to re-create one of the most popular songs of the 1960s, 'Reach Out, I'll be There.' Precisely in tune with every touch. Touch2O Technology. The First of its Kind."

John Lewis Christmas Commercial 2013 - "The Bear + The Hare"

Love these every year!

"Watch the new John Lewis Christmas TV advert and see Hare give his best friend Bear a Christmas he'll never forget."

"Set in a beautiful forest, poor Bear is the only animal that never gets to celebrate Christmas because he has to hibernate every year. However, this year is different. This year Hare has a brilliant idea.

The commercial uses a unique animation style that combines traditional 2D hand-drawn animation, stop frame, and 3D model made sets.The story is set to a cover of Keane's 'Somewhere Only We Know' performed by Lily Allen. This will be available to download from iTunes at midnight on Saturday 9th November."

Sony 4K - "Four Times the Detail" commercial

So beautiful!

"The new advert from Sony showcases our 4K Ultra HD - delivering four times the detail of Full HD TV for the ultimate picture quality. Around 8 million petals were used to symbolise the beautiful 8 million pixel display, only possible with 4K TV."

"At an eye-popping resolution of 3840 x 2160, the detail's so sharp and clear the viewer is immersed in the realism. As flowers erupt majestically from a volcano and sweep through Costa Rica's vibrant landscape, the ad conveys the emotional power of seeing Ultra HD for the first time and experiencing the deeper, more natural tones of the unique TRILUMINOS Display showing more of the colour spectrum. No CGI; everything was shot for real in 4K with Sony's revolutionary F55 and F65 cameras, as used on movies Oblivion and After Earth. 

Director Jaron Albertin said, 'I was really excited to be shooting this ad in 4K in such an amazing location... when I saw the final footage, I was stunned - it just produces really amazing, detailed images... you can see the tiniest detail.'
