There are two levels of contrast working in favor of the spot’s message:
1) The internal contrast of quietness and simplicity dramatically wrecked by the relative realism of the collision.
2) The contrast of this spot’s quietness and simplicity against the backdrop of contemporary advertising, which is decidedly unquiet and unsimple (on the whole).

Although they’re all from the USA (so not classic LWT themes) there’s Stephen J Cannell, Hannah-Barbera, Ubu Productions… and many other happy memories here! Enjoy.
