I love it as a branding concept. They are building the brand from a different point of view. Still it is not really an ad. A small video explaining the idea behind the movie in 3 minutes would have made it more attractive for the audience of this website in particular.

I love it. Brand build up at its excellence. A lot like Formula 1 and the auto manufacturers. Can I see more?
