Gordon’s - Shakespeare

Synopsis
UK television commercial for Gordon’s gin. A glamorous gathering in a theatre bar, people drinking and chatting. A young woman (Fox) holds a glass of gin and tonic with lime. She says to her male companion (Glenister) "O, spirit of love ! How quick and fresh art thou". He responds "Twelfth Night". She continues to test him further "and sharp too. How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child". He responds "King Lear". She replies "and clear, clear as morning roses newly washed with dew". He answers "The Taming of the Shrew". He says "It is enjoyable to make things visible which are invisible." The young woman thinks for a moment and replies "Hamlet". The man says "No, Eric Cantona". She smiles. Voiceover: "Gordon’s. Shall we get started?".
