About the Work

The historic tennis Championships at Wimbledon are world renowned. To Wimbledon, the hallowed turf of Centre Court is more treasured and cherished than even the Crown Jewels are to The Queen. So when the keys to Centre Court landed in the wing of Sipsmith’s rather dapper brand ambassador, Mr Swan, his task of announcing the gin brand’s new partnership with the Championships was never going to go to plan. In the film, in typical ‘Swan-style’, he mistakenly announces Wimbledon to be the ‘Official Tennis of Sipsmith Gin’, rather than the other way around. It’s not long before things snowball and Mr Swan gets more and more carried away, testing the patience of Wimbledon employee Florence, who is on hand to keep him in check. From the grass, to the ball machines, to the lawnmowers, to the tournament's pigeon-scaring hawk, Mr Swan claims everything Wimbledon-y to be now Officially Sipsmith’s. In all its years, Centre Court has never seen such scenes. Game, set, match, Swan.
