The action-packed commercial was shown in two parts during the 2017 Super Bowl on February 5th. It was directed by Louis Leterrier who had worked with our favorite Brit on “The Transporter” and “Transporter 2.”
The full TV spot was released on April 1, 2016. It’s such a crazy, fun and awesome advertisement showing our favorite Brit’s great sense of humor. To take a closer look, check out our high quality screen captures which will make you realize there are many more Jasons (there are even two ads of him inside the subway).
A fantastic ad was also released, featuring multiple Jasons. This one will be most likely used for magazines and displayed at stores, so let us know should you come across one.
D. Masters shared a photo of the subway used in the commercial on his Instagram. He was one of the people who got to work with Jason in Los Angeles, California where everything was filmed on a studio lot and sound stage. However, the subway station in the spot is a New York City one.
It was a lot of work but a lot of fun and it was worth it to see it paid off in the finished product! :-) No sorry that’s the number 1 rule on set no pics of talent! Cos we’re at work so we have a job to do! He [Jason] was a super nice bloke to work with! Nothing but good things to say about him! Top bloke!
Our favorite Brit posted about his new partnership on his Facebook Page along with this preview:
Excited to share the first look at my new project with LG Mobile. I’ll post the full commercial on April 1.
Every character in the commercial is portrayed by Jason (you see him multiple times in the background), an amusing mise-en-scene consistent with the G5’s Life’s Good when you Play More tagline.
“I think the concept that LG is putting forward with the G5 and its modular design is going to catch on with consumers,” said Jason Statham. “I enjoyed partnering with LG and working on this commercial, so I hope that shows through in the final piece.”
