As a culture, we’ve gone through our share of mythic creatures who somehow have become the stuff of dreams. Vampires, no doubt, have pretty much always been at the top of that list. And thanks to Twilight (which is streaming on Netflix now, thank goodness), the likes of vampires and werewolves have captured the hearts of all who lay eyes on them.
We thank Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner for their contributions to society, but it’s time to make way for a new icon to become a mythic creature of dreams: Adam Driver.
Already, Adam Driver has stolen many a hearts with his dashingly good hair and swole body in the Star Wars sequels. But luxury brand Burberry is giving us a new reason to swoon over Driver — they’ve transformed him into a centaur.
Now, before you go asking if science has gone too far, this is all for a commercial. And rest assured, Driver himself is okay and still 100 percent man. But goodness, does Driver as a half-man, half-horse person make us want to buy whatever he’s selling. (It’s the cologne Burberry Hero, by the way.)
But enough of us talking, you can watch the ad for yourself on Twitter via @AdamDriverFiles.

Needless to say, Twitter had their own share of fun in reaction to the news. Because, honestly, who could have expected to see something like this on an ordinary Tuesday morning? Still, it’s a gift, and we would like to thank Burberry personally for coming up with a campaign as clever and as classy as this.
Who knows when (or if) we will ever see Adam Driver return to Star Wars. But as long as we have this ad, I think we’ll be just fine. Now, time to find the nearest perfume department.
