A model completely covered in reflective silver paint sits in a chair. He closes his eyes, and is instantly colorized.

While we’re not sure how effective it is as a promotional spot, the visuals in Excentric’s crazy new ad for Samsung’s Galaxy Y Duos smartphone — which we spotted thanks to Fast Company — are mindblowing. In fact, they might even top Peggy’s pitch for the Bean Ballet! Click through to watch the clip, and let us know if you’re a fan in the comments.
