Legendary Movie Director Ridley Scott Creates Epic Advertisement for Hennessy XO

Ridley Scott – the director of such films as Gladiator, Blade Runner and Alien – has created a four minute-long advertisement for Hennessy XO — a Cognac that retails for about $300 per 750ml bottle. It’s pretty spectacular stuff. (The film, I mean.)

“Each time you taste Hennessy X.O, you go on an odyssey. Seven tasting notes, like seven unique worlds to explore.”
