Hornbach Men Bring In Spring

Hornbach, the European hardware store chain, recently ran a television advertising commercial, “Wachse über dich hinaus”, translated in English as “Grow Beyond Yourself”. Men emerge from the darkness of winter in what seems to be a nod to George A Romero’s Night of the Living Dead and James Wan’s Saw series. The commercial releases the tension as they embrace the madness of spring renovation and gardening.
