McVities – Oaty-Flier
Directed by Stink’s Owen Trevor and conceived by Grey London, McVities continue the successful ‘sweeet’ campaign featuring a series of cute furry animals. The latest addition is a wide-eyed squirrel with a jetpack, soaring through the air to the theme tune from 80s TV show ‘Airwolf’.
The spot follows a man dropping off his wife at work, but after seeing her reluctance to go to the office he sends her a breakfast bar. However, to both their amazement, a flying squirrel delivers it.
MPC’s VFX team animated the eyes, removing all wires and rig, as well as animating the jetpack fire and smoke trail, with George K providing the grade.
