Video: Johnnie Walker 'I Walk' Ad with Robert Carlyle

20090807-johnniewalker.jpg

AdFreak is calling this spot for Johnnie Walker whiskey the best ad of the year so far. At six and a half minutes, it's a bit long but well worth viewing. It's shot in a continuous long take, with Scottish actor Robert Carlyle narrating the history of the brand as he walks down a road in the Scottish highlands. The mini movie becomes completely engaging about a minute in, when you realize the director has worked in a clever set of well-timed visual cues at roadside that correspond to Carlyle's walking, talking narrative. Watch it, after the jump.
