VIDEO: Grip the stick

Published on September 30th, 2017

This classic Chapstick commercial featured DN champion Henry Bossett, who this week retired from his long and successful career at North Sails.

“We headed up to Rovaniemi in Finland in November of 1986 for a 3 day shoot with very limited daylight,” reports Mark Itkowitz. “Above the Arctic Circle, the sun came up at 9 am and went down at 3 pm, and even though everyone wore Arctic survival suits, 30 degrees below zero was incredibly cold. Even my beard became a solid block of ice.”

The sail used in the commercial became a wall fixture at Bossett’s sail loft.
