The Sound of COS features 2-minutes of pure auditory pleasure. With minimal staging and multiple sources of unexpected sound, this spot for fashion brand COS is Lernert & Sander in their quirky element.
Two models on screen are shadowed by two Foley Artists on a soundstage. As the models perform relatively mundane actions in their COS clothing—buttoning up a jacket, fiddling through a purse, popping a coat collar—the sound artists respond with a series of corresponding sound sources that are anything but mundane: umbrellas opening, toilet plungers popping, basketballs scraping against sand, and more. This film is simple and restrained, surprising and delightful.
