Salomon provides an escape back to earth

"Welcome back to Earth" by DDB Paris depicts a woman in a busy city who transports herself away from the grey scene with the help of her Salomon trainers.

She is blown into a serene environment and is seen lying down on some grass, wearing more running gear sold by the retailer.

The camera shows the nature around the woman such as trees and a stream and the woman begins running through the scenery.

Copy at the end reads: "Welcome back to Earth."

The work was created by Benoit Oulhen and Yassine Ouadah-Tsabet. It was directed by Martin De Thurah through Henry.
