Psyop’s Stoli Propaganda

Some of you may have caught Psyop‘s Stoli Blackberry spot a couple of weeks back. Entitled “Airship,” it’s a theatrical tale of Stoli’s journey from the “Motherland” to America.

Although this could be the hundredth Soviet Propaganda influenced piece I’ve seen, leave it to Psyop to breathe new life into a tired style. Not only do they push this visual language to the next level, but they manage to choreograph a piece of dynamic theater that emulates the genre in motion as well.
