Stop-Motion Swans Are Rudely Interrupted in Refreshingly Frank Hotel Ad

Another mini masterpiece from PES

Headshot of Tim Nudd

Stop-motion artist PES, who's done a bunch of ads through the years, shot this amusing spot for the new citizenM Hotel in New York. It starts out all lovely-dovey between these two towel-swans, but doesn't quite end that way. The ad's title, "Swan Song," is apt.

In 2013, PES's "Fresh Guacamole" was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. It's the shortest film ever nominated for an Oscar. Check out the rest of his work on his website.
