Why Walk When a Delahaye is Available?

Ordinarily I wouldn’t subject you to an 11 minute Johnny Walker ad, but maybe if advertising as short film as love letter to vintage racing is a success we’ll see more of these and fewer terrible ads. Will it join the Ferrari Shell spot and Castello Cavalcante in the pantheon of great classic racing ads? Only time will tell. But I’m sure I’ll want another look at that French Racing Blue beauty.

Cameos from Jenson Button and Mika Häkkinen are a fun bonus as well. But of course that gorgeous Delahaye 135 somehow manages to steal the spotlight from even Jude Law. Enjoy.

    What a fun film! havent the foggiest [and dont care] who any of the characters are – save Mr Hakkinen- but what a great car and great dog!
    Really well done, including/especially the ‘animation’, and in spite of the light dollop of PC and mechanical error. Sorry, but cars that have been sitting for years dont just squirt oily goo at you…[I know, I know; artistic license] Thanx for sharing.

    Well I wasn’t expecting much since it IS an ad, after all, but damn that was awesome.
