I often rely on the women behind Honestly..WTF to show me all things fabulous, funny, random and beautiful and this recent post was all of those things at once.
Apparently there was a commercial that featured colorful bouncy balls rushing down the streets of San Francisco - I had never seen it but I'm so glad my eyes are feasting on it now. Remember those balls that cost you a quarter in one of those gumball machines at the supermarket? My mom never really let us get the gum or other candy but she always said yes to a little toy or ball for a quarter.
I loved them...so this commercial and the resulting photos are not only clever and whimsical but also nostalgic and sweet. Danish photographer Peter Funch was there to capture this major production. How awesome, no?
Peter has some pretty amazing and inspiring images on his website. Definitely check him out.

Oh, and definitely check out the making of this awesome commercial here. It was ALL real. Amazeballs! Pun intended.
