Whitehouse Post Weaves Clothing History With New Carhartt Spot

Whitehouse Post Weaves Clothing History With New Carhartt Spot

Recently minted Whitehouse Post editor Chris Murphy joins forces with director/Game of Thrones alum Jason Momoa and his production company Pride of Gypsies to craft an invigorating spot that spans the 127-year history of venerable workwear clothing brand, Carhartt.

The 60 second direct-to-brand effort, dubbed 'Measuring the Rugged Corners,' features a voiceover by actor John C. McGinley and marks the third Carhartt ad helmed in as many years by Momoa, who is admittedly a big fan of the brand. To cohesively bring the actor/director’s vision to life, Whitehouse Post’s Murphy cuts a panoramic, chronological path through time. Murphy’s cut emphasizes Carhartt’s significance in the textile world and its gritty, hard-working/hard-playing aesthetic, beginning with founder Hamilton Carhartt, and expanding throughout factories and farmlands, battlefields and frontiers of yesteryear, to the hunting grounds and sporting events of today.

“Creatively, it was a challenge to tell 127 years of authentic Carhartt history in 60 seconds, but we have an incredible story to share and a visionary director in Jason Momoa, who grew up in a blue-collar, Carhartt-wearing family,” says the brand’s creative director, Brian Bennett. “The end result is a story that really resonates with people who have worn Carhartt for a long time and those who are just learning about the brand for the first time.”
