Default Absolutely brilliant BMW X5 ad!

Hey guys,

I came across this BMW X5 advertisment in an old edition of the Archives mag. Was thinking about it today for some reason, so did a search on the net, and was dumbstruck all over again on seeing it! So thought i'd share it with you guys.
I don't know how old it is, but its execution is bloody brilliant. IMO subtle yet awe-inspiring. Like a hint of what lies beneath the X5's hood!

Hope you guys like it.

Godspeed.

Alok.

naaiice...vary vary diffarant....

the logic of the "still" evades simplicity by a whisker; it defies the fine line between sophistication and awe...

supposed to convey horses under the hood?? if that's the intention then it's simple , direct and creative...drives home the point or message which good advertising must.
