Hard Rock Cafe Argentina's new ad campaign
called “There's a Story Behind Every Song,” including songs by The
Beatles, Eric Clapton and Bob Marley. For the most part, it's a beautiful campaign that tells the history behind some of the greatest songs ever in nuanced, delicate drawings without words.
Developed by Y&R Argentina with artwork by Damian Garofalo and Hugo Orita, Bob Marley's and the Beatles' ads are pretty, but not really surprising. Check out the big Beatles version here and Bob Marley's here. Eric Clapton's? That's another story.
It illustrates Clapton's descent into alcoholism and the death of his son…who fell out a window. And yes, there are drawings of Clapton looking out a window. Um, really? You couldn't have illustrated “Layla”? (On second thought that could've been kind of pornographic.)
