What: El Palacio de Hierro releases a film commercial with futuristic visuals to demonstrate the mindset and goals of the company.
Why it is important: As AR and VR grow, El Palacio de Hierro has released a commercial expressing their mission to be a future-forward company.
The commercial is set on a spaceship and features a man and a woman using holograms and virtual technology to try on and materialize different apparel items and accessories. Some examples include a hologram of different constellations turning into diamond earrings and a laser placing holographic eyeliner onto a woman’s eyes.
