It’s safe to say the history of Johnnie Walker has nothing to do with any of the historical events depicted in this commercial, but that’s irrelevant. This is branding at its most evocative. It speaks of history, excellence, and distinctiveness. And the “Keep Walking” tagline is a great, simple piece of writing.
This on the other hand is trying to express an actual history, and comes off as being entirely fake. The image quality is too bright and crisp, and the music is saccharine. All it succeeds in doing is showing how they took a perfectly wonderful logo and replaced it with sh*t.
