Once upon a time in Mexico: Hallensteins embraces Latin flair for latest Brothers spot

Youtube VideoHallensteins seems to be trying pretty hard to increase its coolness quotient. Publicis Mojo's first ad for the mainstream clothes retailer featured a track by indie darlings Sleigh Bells (and they got in a bit of trouble for the racy lyrics) and to launch the summer 2011 range it has tapped into some Hollywood star power with the velvety voice of academy award nominee Matt Dillon and headed to Mexico City with Thick as Thieves to film the latest instalment of the Brothers campaign. Credits:
