A commercial that follows a group of star-stricken lights that are attracted to a mysterious movie star. The intended purpose of the commercial was to communicate the Persol brand's personality in a sophisticated and imaginative way. The story takes place in a fantasy world, reminiscent of the Hollywood golden era and inspired by Fellini's films "La Dolce Vita" and "8 1/2".
