Hollywood Handsome Guy™ Ryan Gosling has teamed up with the luxury watch brand TAG Heuer to create a short film celebrating the 60th anniversary of the iconic Carrera model.
I wouldn’t normally be too excited about a commercial. But this one does try super hard to make you forget your watching an ad, and just about pulls it off.
The story within a story is that while shooting a watch ad, Ryan Gosling realizes that he loves his Tag Heuer Carerra so much that he just won’t give it back to the prop master. Cue a slapstick car chase scene with plenty of winks and nods back to Gosling 2011 classic, Drive.
It’s pretty entertaining. You can watch the entire mini-film in the player below.
