This commercial for the launch of Smirnoff Black in Milan is so well-produced, it's hard to believe this work was completed on spec. Director Kobayashi created this test commercial with the matrioska, an instantly-recognizable symbol of Russia, in mind.
Kobayashi composited the manga matrioskas over real footage of Milan and topped things off with a clip from M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes." The credit list for this commercial is simple: It's all Kobayashi, armed with his Canon HV20 and a computer.
