Altmann + Pacreau's Kubrick-inspired Leaf Blower Ad Will Blow You Away, 2 years, 6 months ago

Agency channels the legendary 2001: A Space Odyssey in STIHL spot produced by The Gang Films

Altmann + Pacreau's Kubrick-inspired Leaf Blower Ad Will Blow You Away

For their first film together, STIHL and its new agency Altmann + Pacreau, are sending viewers on an unexpected voyage. The worldwide leading retailer of chainsaws, STIHL offers an extensive range of outdoor power equipment, including blowers, the star of their new spot.

In order to illustrate their power, the brand and its agency created a 35-second film, which takes us into a whole new realm, outer space. The music, Richard Strauss’s symphonic poem 'Thus Spoke Zarathusa', is a nod to Stanley Kubrick’s legendary '2001 : A Space Odyssey' which famously featured the piece in its soundtrack. 

The first airdate for this stratospheric opus is set for this spring.
