Olympus is running a television advertising campaign in the United States featuring people flipping through their Olympus digital cameras, literally reliving fiery stunts and party fowls before our eyes.
“Stunt Man” opens on a man looking through his Olympus camera while waiting in his trailer for his stunt on set. He rapidly snaps through mountaineering, flames, underwater chains, Western arrows, a fisherman. The tagline: “Capture your stories with the shockproof, waterproof, freezeproof, crushproof Olympus tough series.” Click on the image below to play the video in YouTube (HD)
“Office Party” features a woman in an office using her camera to help her co-workers relive their office party, changing into party clothes, progressively getting more and more covered in party decorations including confetti, beads and a sombrero. They go from smiling to being shocked as the pictures start revealing juicy details from the night. The tagline: “Amazing image quality, creative freedom. Interchangeable lenses to capture your stories. The Olympus PEN series.” Click on the image below to play the video in YouTube (HD)
