Esso - Daddy No Legs

Like Comment

"Daddy No Legs" is a film produced for Esso in collaboration with adam&eveDDB. It follows David Birrell, an inspirational, real-life father whose ultimate goal - as a double amputee - is to take part in one of the world's most prestigious and oldest active sports car races in 2022. 

Directed by Oscar nominated, multi-award winning ITN's director Marcel Mettelsiefen, the film was shot in a documentary style and is narrated by David himself. 

The research was undertaken in-house and steered by the director, which led to a stronger bond between the director and protagonist, and a deeper engagement with the agency and brand.
