Ernest Desumbila


Ernest’s commercial career has jumped to the next level internationally thanks to his “There Will Be Haters” campaign for Adidas, which has turned into a truly viral phenomenon. He has worked for clients such as Gatorade, Axe or Nike, and has directed music videos for labels like Kitsuné, Owsla and Columbia Records creating true internet hits like his latest Thunderclouds track for the super-band LSD (Labrinth, SIA, Diplo) with more than 240 million views on Youtube. But his real presentation to the world was “Ibizious”, a fake ad for a fake energy drink that was seen around the globe.

Ernest was awarded with Best Young Director at Cannes in 2014, and his videos have earned Vimeo Staff Pick recognition 4 times. Leo Messi, Neymar Jr. and Serena Williams are some of the names he has worked with lately, skilfully bringing out the best and most authentic side of each of them.
