JWT Atlanta Unveils Natural Gas Motor Oil for Pennzoil

Today, JWT Atlanta is launching a new campaign for Pennzoil, introducing the brand’s “first-of-its-kind motor oil made from natural gas, Pennzoil Platinum with PurePlus Technology – the first true innovation in the category in over 35 years.”

JWT Atlanta wanted to parallel the innovation of Pennzoil’s new product, so they created a “first-of-its-kind TV commercial shot on gaseous vapor clouds.” Due to the technical difficulty of pulling off such a stunt, the project took almost a year to complete. Entitled, “Complete Protection,” the 30-second spot features a Maserati driving through “a series of 3D animations projected onto moving gaseous vapor clouds,” which produces an other-worldly effect. To accomplish this, JWT teamed up with MPC NY, Skunk LA and director Raf Wathion. Among the technical challenges associated with the creation of “Complete Protection” were “synchronizing naturally forming elements and choreographing a live performance of a moving automobile, an uncontrollable vapor cloud and projected animation, all in-camera, all in a certain window of time, in a pitch black environment,” with the projections the only light source for the shoot. The spot is part of a larger, integrated campaign which roll out over the course of the year with the tagline “Motor Oil Reimagined.” Stay tuned for a behind-the-scenes video and credits after the jump.

The Russian Returns for DirecTV, Guns Blazing

Ask and ye shall receive we suppose. The Russian oligarch (played by actor Tim Murphy) returns, thick accent, opulence and all in a follow-up to Grey New York’s well-received campaign from last year for DirecTV. Now that the introductions to the man and his mini-giraffe are out of the way, the theme this time around revolves around staying fit, in only the bizarre way our protagonist knows how. The line of choice here: “No pain, no pain.”
