This beautiful music video to promote Oren Lavie’s single “Her Morning Elegance” has already generated nearly 6 million views. If you haven’t seen it it’s a short animated film of a woman re-enacting her dreams as they unfold in her sleep. What makes it so captivating is the way the bed mattress evolves as a canvas to present each dream.
The music industry has provided advertising with a lot of inspiration over the years. I wonder how long before a creative team adapts this creative idea and treatment to promote a particular product?

Well my prediction didn’t take long! This television ad for Target Australia is directly inspired by Oren Lavie’s music video, using the same concept and stop motion technique to dramatise their colourful product range.
