Groove Like Mike

TBWA/ Chiat/Day

As part of its 50th birthday celebration, Gatorade invited us to remaster its classic "Be Like Mike" commercial with Michael Jordan after almost a quarter century. We teamed up with TBWA/ Chiat and our 1st Ave Machine partners, in order to develop a campaign, in which three different spots depict three unique directors' approaches for refreshing the iconic commercial. We seriously had a lot of fun experimenting with traditional animation, 3D, post-production, installations, and camera tricks. In "Groove like Mike" we took inspiration from manga cartoons and graphic novels and we remixed it, combining live action footage with dynamic and vectorial rotoscopy.
