The "Surfer" was designed to promote world famous beer Guinness.
The TV campaign told the story of a Polynesian surfer who managed to ride a very big wave, under pretty interesting circumstances: white horses were running with enormous power behind the huge wave.
Watch the Guinness ad. "Surfer" was shot in Hawaii, won several prizes and was even considered by Channel 4 and The Sunday Times as the best ad of all time.
The script was based in "Neptune's Horses", an 1893 Walter Crane painting. The soundtrack was composed by Leftfield, a British electronic band.
