To celebrate the release of British fashion designer Ted Baker’s new advertising campaign for their ‘T For Tall’ mens range, with Olympic swimmer Mark Foster performing a routine with the Aquabatix synchronized swimmers, we have selected our favourite ten commercials that have turned to synchronized swimming to promote their brand.
Click on the brand titles below to view each commercial in our top ten:
Filmed entirely underwater with a synchronised swimmer and a ball, this graceful performer swirls and elegantly dances in a flowing dress rolling a ball along her body to help define the brand’s message of the razor’s flexiball moving over every curve and contour without losing contact.
The Spanish national synchronized swimming team feature in this commercial fresh from their Olympic medal success in 2008. The advert re creates the colour, energy and fizz of this popular brand of cava, which was entirely filmed in the UK at Pinewood Studio’s underwater stage.
Flashback to the early noughties and this time its the turn of the USA national team, who are are filmed in slow motion to advertise VISA as one of the official sponsors of the Olympic Games. They even manage to spell out the word VISA with their bodies in the water for the finale.
We can not forget our favourite water babies performing a musical spectacular in the Evian campaign from the late 1990’s. Mesmerising and using groundbreaking technology back in those days.
Gillette seem to favour synchronised swimming to highlight their product. This time it is the turn of the men. Yes, male synchronized swimmers take over this short film performing in green masks and boxes on their heads. It is certainly different!
Aquabatix model and synchronized swimmer, Lenka, serenely runs on the surface of the sea in this calming advert for Kuoni travel. Filmed in the Maldives, Lenka had to run upside down in the sea with her feet at the surface and arms moving like a runner then the image was flipped.
Funky and sexy, these synchronized swimmers are filmed mainly underwater to highlight this young women’s fashion line. Great soundtrack to what seems like a mass of red swimsuits and girls bodies everywhere.
Throwback 24 years ago to this eye catching television advert for the hot drink Horlicks low fat product with the British synchronized swimming team taking centre stage. Bright and smiley, it’s classic nineties advertising all packaged into twenty seconds.
Ever seen a duck do synchronized swimming? Neither had we until this advert appeared with the American synchronized swimming team promoting an insurance brand.
Released in August 2015, this short online film from British designer, Ted Baker, carries on from the first episode where Olympic swimmer and Strictly Come Dancer performer, Mark Foster, is kidnapped. We see him here, taken to a house with a pool and pop up in the middle of a synchronized swimming routine with the Aquabatix ladies.
As you can see, the eye catching skills and movement of synchronised swimmers both on top of and under water combined with their incredible bodies and stunning looks, mixed with an agency’s artistic vision, has resulted in some of the most memorable advertising moments for big brand companies.
