Just looks like an error, once you have seen the ad a dozen or more times...lol.

It's almost like an afterthought or executive decision someone made to add the comment about it being a shame scene, without being the one who envisioned the entire storyline of the ad. But possibly deleted another interior shot, like the rear center console with the controls(maybe pressing the massage button).

I think he needed to cross his leg, press massage and then say that it would be a shame.

But I think both will be really good ads, and present the Continental very well in 2017.
I beleive they are trying to give him an alter-ego or other self. He acts as though he is surprised to see himself in the back seat, and smiles and acts all goofy about it as though he is 'in touch' with his other self.


I imagine they wanted the "wouldn't that be a shame" comment earlier, and edited the sequence, messing up the leg crossing.

Re: Lincoln Continental Ad Campaign

This is the best of all the commercials featuring Matthew BUT it's still horrible. Like how hard is it to include more shots of the vehicles in the commercials Lincoln? These wierd Matthew Mac interactions are unbearable

Re: Lincoln Continental Ad Campaign

just for the cinematographer's name ...
Matthew McConaughey Returns for 2017 Lincoln Continental Advertisement
Another esoteric look at a Lincoln

AutomobileMag.com

By: Conner Golden December 19, 2016


... the commercial is an abstract take on the new full-size luxury sedan...

...Like all other McConaughey Lincoln ads, this is beautifully shot. It’s no surprise, seeing as cinematographer Wally Pfister serves as the lead director. Pfister is known for his work on the recent Christopher Nolan Batman films, as well as winning an award for his cinematography in “Inception.”...

Re: Lincoln Continental Ad Campaign

I've actually always wondered about the significance of actor placing in commercials like this. Considering the financial status of Ford and other manufacturers and that big loan they took, I'm torn between why they would want to spend more money on something rather intangible versus the appeal of someone famous endorsing their product. For their sake, let's hope a lot of people value McConaughey's good opinion! haha
