Galaxy Chocolate Reincarnates Audrey Hepburn Through CGI For New Ad
Film legend Audrey Hepburn passed away in 1993, but here she is – the new face of the UK’s Galaxy chocolate brand and starring in the company’s latest commercial.
According to YouTube’s audreyhepburnarchive – the channel that uploaded this video – Hepburn’s sons, Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti gave permission for their mother’s image to be recreated with CGI, saying: ‘Our mother often spoke about her love of chocolate and how it lifted her spirit so we’re sure she would have been proud of her role as the face of Galaxy. The advert perfectly captures her playful spirit and we hope audiences enjoy it as much as they enjoyed her movies.”
The campaign also uses Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer’s “Moon River,” the Grammy and Oscar-winning song made famous by Hepburn’s performance in the iconic film, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
