Phibous Vietnam and The Sweet Shop defines pleasure in new tvc for Piaggio scooters
What would it feel like to fly? Director Luci Schroder and Phibous Vietnam explore this question in ‘Pleasure’, a sleek and sexy spot for Piaggio scooters.
The story takes the audience on a surreal journey via the fantasies of the heroine. The gravity defying imagery, modern styling, subdued palette and gorgeous use of slow-motion combine to answer one thing. “What is the Piaggio Fly?” Simple, it’s pleasure.
The production happened locally in Vietnam. Schroder had this to say about her experience, “I really enjoyed imagining this piece. I wanted to deliver something visually unique, dream like but at the same time tangible. I am pleased with the final result. Shooting in Vietnam was a really fun experience. I was instantly struck by the frenetic energy of Ho Chi Minh City and the food was pretty damn amazing!”
Schroder was recently selected as a finalist in the Cannes Young Director Awards for her short film ‘Alpine Hands’.
