Film students Daniel Titz and Dorian Lebherz had to come up with an spec for Johnny Walker and this is what they came up with. It’s a 90 second ad, entitled “Dear, Brother” and it runs along with poetic narration of a letter.
The narrative’s heartbreaking premise is a basic one: two brothers (played by Robin Guiver and Matthew Lewis-Carter) walk along the majestic landscape of the Isle of Skye as narrator (scripted by the filmmakers in collaboration with voice actor John Reilly) pays tribute to the fraternal bond. After negotiating obstacles, sharing a Scotch and spending the night in a dilapidated cottage, a gut-wrenching twist brings things to a close.
See it for yourself, and understand why so many people are talking about this.
