BMW/Fallingwater commercial

Post by JDS »

So has anyone else seen the new BMW commercial on TV, where Fallingwater takes a wrecking ball? I've only seen it once, and I wasn't quite prepared for it, but it seems quite realistic. It's been, what, 70 years, and the ol' boy's work still seems quite well known. I think Frank would have liked the technology used to make it, and of couse the fact that one of his buildings was center stage.

Yes, I saw it and strangely enough, only once also. Amazing what digital imaging can do these days. But what's realistic are the Philistines that would certainly tear down anything needing money to fix up or build, even if others classify it as a masterwork. I like BMW's pitch. While the ad is directed at BMW's cars and politically veiled, the message is the same...don't let accountants and lawyers decide what should happen! :)
