Director Isa Prahl teamed up with Hamburg film production company ELEMENT E and client ALLIANZ on a shoot with German football legend Steffi Jones. What is Steffi waiting for? She lets the camera know that she definitely isn’t waiting for her dream prince. No the spot with the out and proud lesbian, “who grabbed her princess quite a while ago”, is working on something far more important than gender stereotypes. She is concerned with pensions, after all “if you sit around waiting, you will lose out on money” is the motto of the spot. The agency was Ogilvy & Mather.
