Beyonce not only shatters mirrors, revisiting steps from her past, including "Single Ladies" and "Crazy In Love," but debuts a new song in her first commercial spot with Pepsi.
“I had so much fun collaborating on this campaign with Pepsi. I got to re-live some of my favourite past characters and looks. It was the first time I saw those costumes in years and it was very emotional,” says Beyoncé. “I’m proud of those moments and they all connect in some way and have helped me evolve into who I am today.”
Released Thursday, the spot is entitled “Mirrors” and is one of the first creative collaboration elements of her partnership, which sees Beyoncé’s most iconic personalities from her past – including “Bootylicious” Beyoncé, “Sasha Fierce” and “Crazy in Love” Beyoncé – go head-to-head in a dance-off in a mirrored studio.
As it progresses, Beyoncé recreates her most memorable moves before being inspired to create a fresh, never-before-seen routine. “Mirrors” chronicles Beyoncé’s realization that all these experiences and personas helped her become who she is NOW, much like the story of a “Grown Woman” – the perfect visual embodiment of the “Live For Now” brand ethos.
Mirrors” was shot in New Jersey (USA), directed by Jake Nava who has collaborated with Beyoncé on numerous projects including the indelible “Crazy in Love” video and filmed by Oscar award-winning cameraman Claudio Miranda.
