This spot for Starhub's coverage of the Women's Tennis Association Finals in Singapore (starting on 25 October) runs about as far as you can get from crisp tennis whites and manicured grass. Instead we see athletes lifting weights in abandoned factories, pushing ruined old tyres across barren landscapes and literally crawling through mud.
The spot sets the action against the classic song Que Sera Sera, a tune about accepting fate, creating a nice tension that's resolved by two lines of text at the end: "The future is not ours to see...it's ours to create."
The ad will run on Starhub's pay TV network, YouTube and Facebook as well as Golden Village cinemas.
Ad Nut is feeling fired up and ready to crawl through some mud, dramatically!
