Stunt Performers Tumble Down Mountain in Australian Ad for Schweppes

Schweppes Australia 'Tumble'

In a new Australian ad for Schweppes, a man somersaults, or as my mother used to say, “falls ass over tea kettles” down a snowy mountainside to the classical strains of Gilbert & Sullivan’s ‘HMS Pinafore’.

As the man continues his fall through a grassy hillside and lush forest he’s joined by more tumbling people, before their gravity-fed experience comes to a splashing end in a pristine pool of bubbly water. The ad was shot in various locations on the north and south islands of New Zealand.

The spectacular ad, appropriately titled ‘Tumble’, was created by the Melbourne office of George Patterson Y&R, and directed by Steve Rogers for Revolver.

To create the spectacular tumbling performances, the stunt people used a combination of freestyle actions, air ramps and huge towers with complex rigging set ups that were removed in post-production.

Aussie Casino Swings to Lounge Version of Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the Jungle“You know where you? You’re in the jungle baby, and you’re gonna die!”

A few weeks ago, hard-rock legends Guns n’ Roses were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The guys from the classic lineup (even drummer Steven Adler) all showed up to accept the honour, except for Axl Rose of course.

The honours keep rolling in, one of their best-known songs ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ has been used in a new video promoting Sydney resort and casino The Star.

The clip features American singer Bill Baker belting out the song while seated at a piano as it tours through the hotel and casino.

The video is part of the ‘There Will be Stories’ campaign from Sydney agency, The Monkeys and was produced by Revolver.
