A road less traveled is made for a car less ordinary. #ThatsContinental, starring Matthew McConaughey, and directed by Wally Pfister. Discover more about the 2017 Lincoln Continental at lincoln.com/cars/continental
The new spot, “Crafted,” kicks off with McConaughey and the Continental staring each other down in the middle of an expansive stretch of shallow water. It’s a gorgeous setting, a glacial plain Lincoln says is just 160 miles from Reykjavik, Iceland. McConaughey first stands outside the Continental, admiring the proportions. Inside, he remarks on how the owner “might never sit in the rear seat” and “what a shame” that would be. Cue the requisite dynamic shots of the Continental sluicing its way through the wet landscape, and the shot ends with the phrase, “That is Continental/This is Lincoln.”
Like all other McConaughey Lincoln ads, this is beautifully shot. It’s no surprise, seeing as cinematographer Wally Pfister serves as the lead director. Pfister is known for his work on the recent Christopher Nolan Batman films, as well as winning an award for his cinematography in “Inception.”
Ellen may not have been in Matthew’s original Lincoln commercial, but that didn’t stop her from adding herself to it. She showed Matthew their work together.
