Hamish Rothwell Directs Christopher Walken + Justin Timberlake in Super Bowl Spot for Bai

In Hamish Rothwell's return to the Superbowl, he directs A-list celebrities Christopher Walken and Justin Timberlake for antioxidant drink Bai.  

In the spot, Walken dramatically recites the lyrics to *NSync's hit song "Bye Bye Bye". Timberlake teased the Superbowl appearance days before as "Chief Flavor Officer" of Bai but viewers were surprised to find Christopher Walken leading the spot before revealing his game-watching partner. Walken's signature deadpan performance, the song tie-in (cleverly clearing up questions about the brand's pronunciation) and Justin's appearance, referencing his boy band days, combined to make a memorable spot that gave a nod to 90s nostalgia.

Bai has been featured on numerous top lists for the best ads of the Superbowl and topped TiVo's list of Most Engaging Commercials.

The spot is Rothwewll's first with US production powerhouse Superprime.
