Croquet Balls & Hermès Ties


By Julien Sauvalle

Stop-motion enthusiasts will rejoice at the new Long Live Sport! video campaign
In the enchanted world of Hermès, ceramic plates play ping-pong for an audience of Toolbox bags, silk ties become croquet wickets, and shoes leapfrog on their own... while pétanque balls nap on plush cushions.

As part of their annual Sporting Life theme, Hermès recently released a series of delightful videos in which objects are brought to life by director Simon Cahn, who has previously worked with Spike Jones and Lady Gaga.

Watch "Hermès Plays Croquet" here, and go to to see three more videos from the campaign.
