Vandal partnered with production company Flint to produce a new 60" Continental Tyres commercial for the Chinese market.

Commissioned by Pico Plus Shanghai and directed by Flint’s Andreas Smetana, the concept uses a combination of live action and comic book style animation. The animation style, inspired by the work of Michel Vaillant, brings to life how a driver's imagination on his daily commute turns into an energetic race to the chequered flag.

Says Vandal Creative Director, Emile Rademeyer: “Our artists excel at challenges. Combining handcrafted comic book illustration and animation with live action resulted in a unique look that our client was extremely happy with.”

Vandal's in-house Sound Designer Nigel Crowley adds: "I wanted to create a soundtrack that contrasted the mundane real world sounds of footsteps, dog barks and car doors with fantastical sounds of jet engines, rockets and whooshes to compliment the comic-book treatment."
