The hand-painted Beyoncé commercial for her album '4' shows just how much of a mark the superstar has left on the world. Created in only six days by Brickyard VFX to promote the former Destiny's Child star's new record, the ad takes viewers around the world with animated watercolor paintings. Each scene of the 'Around the World' promo was painted based on stock photos of the landmarks found in the spot, then spiced up with a red '4' painted onto each statue, building or landscape. The animation is beautiful and captivating, with each image smoothly flowing into the next. Blotches of paint bleeding from one scene to the next create this amazing continuity.

The promo spot ends with stylized watercolors of the diva herself wearing various outfits and costumes from past videos and performances. The hand-painted Beyoncé commercial is an incredibly creative show-stopper -- just like the star herself.
