Jude Law Stars in Anomaly’s Lengthy ‘The Gentleman’s Wager’ for Johnnie Walker

In the latest sign that the digital ad lengths are getting out of control, Anomaly tapped Jude Law for a six minute “short film” long ad promoting Johnnie Walker Blue Label.

When Law admires a wealthy friend’s boat, with the friend going on about the ship’s unique aspects and building circumstances, he makes a gentleman’s wager to win the seafaring vessel with a dance. Unsure why he would do this, when he can’t really dance, Law nevertheless prepares a choreographed effort to impress the friend and win the boat. It’s an entertaining enough set up, but the dance scene itself leaves a lot to be desired and drags on far too long. While not without its charm, “The Gentleman’s Wager” really could have been told in half its running time. Stay with us for credits after the jump. Read more

Mark Foster, Kimbra, A-Trak Collaborate for Converse

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Converse seems to be taking this adage to heart, producing another installment of its “Three Artists One Song” campaign by Anomaly.

The campaign has created unlikely collaborators in the past, including joining New Order’s Bernard Sumner with Hot Chip and Hot City and Soulja Boy with Matt and Kim and Andrew W.K. For the track and music video “Warrior,” Converse and Anomaly are bringing together DJ and Kid Sister/M.I.A. collaborator A-Trak, Mark Foster of seemingly overnight indie pop sensation Foster the People, and New Zealand-based singer/songwriter, Kimbra.

As with past collaborations, the actual track is a pleasant surprise. But, the video, featuring a lucha libre underground wrestling fight club, is where this unlikely trio shines. Credits after the jump.

Converse, Anomaly Take Road Trip of Sorts with Pro Skater

Apparently 16 hours or so is all it takes to get from Los Angeles to Vegas via skateboard according to this new Converse short film that promotes the Ka-One sneaker and comes to us, yet again, from New York’s Anomaly. After spending 2010 consorting with hip musical acts¬† like Hot Chip, Vampire Weekend and Kid Cudi, the agency is turning its focus to the skater set with this clip starring pro Kenny Anderson.

Call it a day in the life if you will, but from the looks of it, Anderson, who seems to be balancing, gliding and riding on just the front end of his board throughout his entire interstate excursion, can rally the masses like Rocky running through the streets of Philly. The Converse branding is once again kept to a minimum during this road trip, which seems like no sweat off Anderson’s shoulders. Credits after the jump.
