Throwback Thursday: David&Goliath Spins You Right ‘Round for the California Lottery

This new spot for the California Lottery from David&Goliath and biscuit filmworks director Aaron Ruell stars (among others): an auto mechanic, a laundromat patron, a roller skater who bears a striking resemblance to 70′s Burt Reynolds and a synth-pop jam that may or may not have demanded a remake.

D&G won the CA Lottery account back in 2010–and this Wheel of Fortune tie in is a fairly dramatic departure from other spots created for the client.

Credits and older ads after the jump.
From November 2013 (with a little help from Debussy):

And a crazier spot from back in 2012:
