Check out this brilliant advertisement, directed by Bruno Aveillan for Cartier! Watch as a big bejeweled cat comes to life and leaps across the country, battling a Golden Chinese Dragon, who's riding the back of a giant Elephant City... If only all commercials were this lovely to look at.


In case you want to know more about this big kitty's journey The Telegraph has a wonderful breakdown right here:

The panther travels to St Petersburg in the snow, to China where he comes face-to-face with a golden dragon, to an Indian palace built upon an elephant's back and filled with glittering animal jewellery (many pieces of which reside in the Cartier archive), before leaping aboard the wings of and identical replica of the airplane built by Alberto Santos-Dumont, to showcase the classic Cartier Santos watch (first commissioned by the Brazilian aviation legend in 1904). The panther finally lands in Paris, the birthplace of Cartier, on Place Vendôme where he meets supermodel Shalom Harlow at the Grand Palais.


Thank you for the tip, Alan Dean Foster!
