Award for Sony's 'paint flats' ad
Sony Bravia Paint advert
The advert was filmed from 65 different camera angles
A television advertisement which shows thousands of litres of paint exploding onto a block of flats in Glasgow has scooped a major award.

The advert for Sony's high-definition Bravia TV won best commercial at the British Television Advertising Awards.

The television campaign took 10 days to film and involved 250 people. It was directed by Jonathan Glazer, whose credits include the film Sexy Beast.

The high rise flats in Queen's Court, Toryglen, were demolished in January.

In the advert, which was created by Fallon London, 70,000 litres of environmentally-friendly paint are blasted across the flats using fireworks.

It was filmed from 65 different camera angles.
