A Dash for Royal Perfection in Cinematic Crown Royal Whisky Ad

Grey New York and Crown Royal have launched this beautifully shot tribute to a royal moment in Canadian history… the day Britain’s King George VI and Queen Elizabeth arrived in the country in 1939. When they arrived, they received the Canadian whisky Crown Royal in their honour - complete with a purple and gold bag.

The cinematic commercial, entitled ‘The One’, was directed by Peter Thwaites through The Corner Shop.
