Do you remember that commercial that aired a few years ago involving hundreds of thousands of colorful bouncy balls wildly bouncing down the steep streets of San Francisco? Not only was it balls to the wall amazing, it was 110% real! And honestly, who doesn’t love bouncy balls? Danish photographer Peter Funch was there to capture the impressive spectacle and thanks to my new favorite online art store, Lumas, the limited edition prints are available for sale.
i love it! i had never saw the commercial but i like it.
Ahhhh that commercial is bring back memories, I totally remember loving it and just being in awe. 🙂 So pretty! Can’t believe there are prints made of them, I’ll have to check that out!
Thanks for investigating. 😉
I lOOOVE the bouncy ball commercial!!! It´s my absolute all time favorite!
You can find a making off video on youtube too. It just showed how much fun the guys had doing it too.
Awesome that you can buy the pics now!!
This is absolutely amazing! I don’t even know what to say. It’s so magical and strange to see a whole street engulfed in bouncy balls, that it doesn’t seem real. Watching this made me feel like a little kid does when they are entirely in wonder. I think my favorite parts of this video was the dog (or cat???) watching the balls bounce down the road, the lady smiling and watching out her window, and the frog jumping out the gutter into the colorful bouncy balls. Such an amazing video! Thank you so much for sharing.
beyond amazing!! heart this commercial!
I love that commercial, it was so cool and the music was good too.
I wish I had been there and seen all those bouncing balls with my own eyes, it must have been a pretty spectacular sight!
I didn’t know the commercial, but it’s amazing! Like poetry
THIS IS AMAZING! I hadn’t seen the commercial before but WOW I love it.
we live in SF and went out to the filming spot a few years ago and found 20 of the balls that were left behind and hidden in bushes. they are now in a jar in our house! 🙂
amazing post. Would love if you could check out my latest post all about Hollywood shopping. xoxo
For all the latest celebrity fashion news.
i was in love with this series it’s what led me to jose gonzalez also the one with the pyramid is so quirky and fun!
Amazing. Makes me love SF even more. This is how I discovered a great musician, Jose Gonzales
that’s my alltime favourite commercial! did you see the making off? A-MA-ZING!!!!!
Such a nice post! I liked it… I would like ballons like these on my wedding I think 😛
I don’t remember the commercial, but the video and photography are incredible. Those colorful bouncy balls set along with an acoustic guitar track truly capture a childlike innocence and the idea of diversity that’s very poetic! It boggles my mind that they got permission to basically litter the streets of SF with 250,000 plastic balls! I also enjoyed the “Making of” video, where you can hear the sound of clanking metal as the balls bounce onto cars and alarms going off. Pretty funny!
I have to have one of those prints! I love the first one!
omg that looks incredible! how did they do the clean up…
I instantly felt in love with this images!
Amazing! That is really neat. I would love to get some photos!
I’ve never seen the commercial but WOW-SA! these are amazing. And, I LOVE Lumas too.
This is pretty amazing.
This made me so happy to see!
this is absolutely amazing! i dont remember ever seeing the commercial but wow its unreal! completely gorgeous – thanks so much for this post!
I thought this was so amazing, the photos, the commercial, and then the making of, I just had to post in on my blog over here:
I’d never seen the commercial when it first came out, I’m so glad you shared it with us!
I WANT to love this, but can’t help thinking that out of all of those bouncy balls set loose, at least some of them were eventually washed into the ocean… And that makes me think of the choking hazard that they pose to animals that may mistake them for food. Sad face.
That commercial was amazing, love it! Even better with the photos.
Ahh how have I not seen this before?! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
that was so cool! thank you for sharing it!
this made me smile so big i feel like a little kid:)
Never been more proud to own a sony Bravia! Ha!
What amazing photos! Going to re-watch the commercial now!
this commercial is so so good! i didn’t know that they used real bouncy balls, that just makes it that much better. the colours are so beautiful.
I have to agree with Andrea : (
Um, am I the only one who can’t figure out what this is a commercial FOR?
@Melissa and Andrea- they picked them all up! Except for a few stragglers in the bushes.
Can anyone tell me where to find these prints, I reeeeally need one!!! Beautiful…
Your own digital slr photographic camera can be able to some very nice outcomes after you determine what your manual adjustments are only for. Allow me to share a few easy tips to allow you to try out sluggish shutter…Photographer Perth
About 5 years ago my wife and I were walking through SoHo in New York and saw a print of the picture at the top of this article in the shop window of Lumas. We were spellbound. It was a bit indulgent, but it hangs in our home in London.
