Simply stunning! really took my breath away, but the style and music reminds me of the timelapse video of the AUDI R8 and the flames of the new BMW M3 commercials.

Overall very very nice ad though, 9/10 imo. Just love this hi-tech, futuristic look and feel!

Lovely post-prod. Interesting way of giving it the airplane experience for a car.

There is an idea here. Lincoln is a car that doesn't behave like what you are currently driving...ergo the overall image is anything but ordinary automobile.

Fully agree. An idea cannot be replaced by post production.

Cat Power singing Bowie. Priceless.

Lots of metal for the client and some emotion for the creatives. Nice bread and butter work. The other two adverts in the campaign are unfortunately less impressive.

The credit list is longer than at the end of Saving Private Ryan.

This campaign has had some real interesting choice in music, both the songs and the performances
