Durex Protect Yourself

Director Paul Santana is getting some attention with “Protect Yourself”, a slow motion spec commercial for Durex (or King Condoms) featuring men who wished they could turn back time. Young men grimace as they endure the hardships associated with children with no thought for the state of their fathers minds or the safety of their groins. The ad was named the best spec spot of the year for 2013 by the Association of Independent Commercial Producers.
