Have you seen the latest television advert for Galaxy chocolate, the one starring Audrey Hepburn?
But of course this isn’t the real Audrey Hepburn, star of films such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s and My Fair Lady, she died aged 63 back in 1993. This is a computer generated young Hepburn very cleverly integrated into a nostalgically filmed scene. It is obvious a lot of time and money has been spent on this TV advert which even has the approval of the late actress’s two sons, Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti.
Now the CGI is very well done, and the live action has been processed to give a periodic feel, but Miss Hepburn’s graphic just does not seem natural to me, and the whole thing comes across as just a little bit creepy.
If you haven’t seen it take a look below.
