Football

The FIFA Women’s World Cup may be over but we particularly enjoyed the spoof documentary from Norway’s football team, highlighting the stereotypes they must face on a regular basis.

The car manufacturer allows you to create an advert using your own sound-effects but the best part of this campaign is the King of Sound Effects, Michael Winslow (who appeared in Police Academy) features in the advert, doing what he does best.
