BETC Shopper Makes a Truly Modern Epic Adventure for Leroy Merlin

The newest spectacular commercial for home improvement store Leroy Merlin has just been released and they've put a freaking house on water. Talk about a feat.

The short film shows a house sailing on water to illustrate the phases that a couple goes through whilst renovating their home. The poetic ad is brought to life by a rendition of Sailing, originally sung by Rod Stewart.

The production of this commercial was epic as it had to be shot three times: first on dry land, another time on a moving set and then finally on water.

This highly technical and complex shoot took place during seven days in South Africa. It was completed using divers, drones and helicopters to capture as much of the beautiful images, amazing landscapes and raw emotion as possible.
