The first campaign video Prada released for its spring/summer 2012 collection wasn't all that wild: It was models, staring each other down in those hot rod heels at a gas station. Now, the brand has released another video entitled Real Fantasies, and things have officially gotten wackier.
In it, models wearing Prada's '50s-inspired spring wares are juxtaposed against backgrounds that look like old-timey movie sets, film stills, and a strange gold field. You name it, they've included it. For additional images that definitely don't skimp on the quirk, head on over to their Facebook page.
