The parody ad sees Kiefer Sutherland, as Bauer, creating cupcakes.

The campaign, created by Mother, breaks today (20 August) in the UK, Germany, France and Russia. It includes cinema, TV and print activity.

Acer’s global brand director Maarten Schellekens says the ad is the first in a series that takes well known characters and explores activities “beyond their limits”.
