Ahead of the Olympics in Rio, Grey New York has rolled out a short film for Gillette called 'Perfect Isn't Pretty' that focuses on the grueling work & training that athletes go through every day. The video features Sia's song 'Unstoppable' and a rap from Pusha T. Athletes featured in the video include swimmer Ning Zetao from China, cyclist Andy Tennant from the UK, and US decathlete Ashton Eaton. A one-minute version of the ad will run during the Olympics Opening Ceremony on NBC on August 5.
