Not-so silly Billy.
by Andrew MacGregor

Simon Billy (we like to think his doppelgänger’s called Billy Simon) is the world's fastest man on skis. Last year, Billy reached 255.5 km/h at Vars la Forêt Blanche ski resort. His father, Philippe, was also a world record holder, so all the Frenchman needs to do is not have kids and his cherished title is safe.

Car manufacturers McLaren like his style, so Billy stars alongside the 750S supercar in this snowy commercial. Director James Gough flits between Vars and the track to forge a serviceable connection between man and machine, though part of us wanted to see the advertised vehicle hit the slopes and fly through the air.
