Killer instincts.

by Andrew MacGregor


Amazon Prime: “Last Cupcake” - 60s

One of four well-crafted Amazon Prime films from Droga5 and director Steve Rogers, this instalment shows how just one episode of Prime exclusive ‘Hanna' can turn even the meekest individual into a force to be reckoned with… especially when there's a cupcake up for grabs.

As an entire office converges on the leftovers from a client meeting, the protagonist shows considerable guile as she outmanoeuvres her co-workers. A dropped mug here, a stepped-on shoe there ensures she takes pole position - enough to make any sweet-toothed viewer or teenage assassin proud.

This campaign's ‘before and after' aspect is also handled brilliantly here, as we see the cogs turning in her head the night before on the sofa. Anyone who dreams of channelling their telly addiction into everyday life will relate to this.
