Leon (age 64): the real fake candidate

Before we go any further I need to ask you to take a look at the video below. This is the clip of an audition during the television program ‘So You Think You can Dance’ in Belgium. Never mind the language, just look…

Meet Leon. I suppose you noted the consternation of the jury not only when they saw a 64-year old doing an audition in what is basically a program targeted at youngsters, especially when they saw Leon end his audition with a split. The best of all this? Leon was actually entered into the competition by Milk (VLAM) as a part of the campaign they’re running to show that drinking milk on a daily basis will help you to stay fit and flexible.

Obviously nobody knew about Leon being part of an ad campaign until we (Duval Guillaume) revealed it after the show was aired on television. This was one of the first campaigns where I was part of the team that developed it so it was especially great for me to see the outcome of it.

To get the full picture of the campaign you should also take a look at the video below, this shows the initial commercial that was created for Milk a while ago and which has been on air earlier this year. The idea of doing something special with ‘So You Think You can Dance’ seemed a logical follow up on this ;)

I hope you like it, I know I do :)
