The famous model and football player David Beckham has recently tken his career up a notch when he created his own whiskey – Haig Club; as a No-Age-Statement. As whiskey has connotations of an old man, Beckham is trying to bring the age down and make it more fashionable and realistic in the eyes of the younger generation.
Within the advert, here are so many factors which work in synergy to create the very personal yet deliberate advert. To start off with, Guy Richie is the director of the advert, as well as shooting for David Beckham’s H&M advert, meaning that the two have worked together and have created this bond. Beckham has recently published a programme about him riding a motorbike around the country, as this is something he personally enjoys; which is why he enters the advert on a bike; the very personal elements makes the product authentic, as you are seeing the real Beckham. There is such a strong narrative and marketing strategy behind the whole filming.

Next, part of the group of friends, you will see the familiar face of Jimmy Choo, who is indeed a friend of Beckhams. All of these work together to create such a thought out advert. Also, you see the famous selfie moment; the sharded self, it is the modern world and what the target audience know. As well as the selfies being taken around the world at famous landmarks, meaning that there is a global push to the product. The whole advert is so incredibly developed and one which I think is incredibly effective.
