barrettSF Designs WWE 2K18 Video Game Ad Urging “Be Like No One”
In “Vandal,” its latest creative work for the WWE 2K video game franchise, advertising agency barrettSF is focusing on the future by disrespecting the past. The new spot launched June 19 on ESPN with the tagline: “Be Like No One.”
In years past, names like John Cena, Stone Cold and Steve Austin have been announced as cover stars, but this year’s cover star, Seth Rollins, could care less about the past. He’s burning it to the ground.
Seth Rollins is a dynamic in-ring architect, charismatic leader and fan-favorite WWE personality. Showcasing him created a unique opportunity to elevate the next generation of WWE Superstars by rebelling against the company’s storied history, rather than embracing it.
