Stella Artois - Crying Jean

February 06, 2011 | 1:00

In Anheuser-Busch’s first Super Bowl ad for Stella, Academy Award-winning actor Adrian Brody croons in a smoky French club full of enthralled beautiful women. Brody’s first singing gig was part of the “She Is a Thing of Beauty” global campaign created for Stella by ad agency Mother that included ads from well-known filmmakers such as Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola and print ads by photographer Bert Stern.

The minute-long Super Bow XLVl spot was directed by Ringan Ledwidge, who has also directed spots for Nike, Coke, John Lewis, Puma and The Guardian.
