Athletes Invade Toronto

//  10.02.14


I love a visually-driven spot that’s set to a great soundtrack (that’s a Delphonics cover by Mischa ‘Book’ Chillak featuring Esthero). I also love Toronto and happy to see it showcased in all its glory.

To celebrate the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, Ontario Tourism has launched this epic spot, “Invade”. It’s created by FCB Toronto, directed by Untitled Films‘ Phil Brown, edited by Marc Langley at Rooster Post, and features music and sound design by Grayson Matthews.
