A sideways look at life.

by Syd Briscoe

O2: “Rhythm of Your Life” - 30s

O2 explore the ups and downs of life quite literally in this skilfully constructed ad. A woman swings as if she were a living pendulum, keeping time on her life as the scenes around her change with every pivot.

Each is transition is neatly executed, while certain moments - such as when the protagonist holds her arms out for a baby before it suddenly appears - lend the concept a gently knowing whimsy.

It's also an engaging way to promote to the brand's latest offer - a phone contract which can be altered in terms of length and upfront cost according to the customer's needs. Clean, precise work from director Oscar Hudson.
