Commonwealth//McCann, Reel FX Team On Tongue-In-Cheek Promo For Chevrolet, "The LEGO Batman Movie"
Chevrolet, along with students from Detroit’s Cody Rouge community, A World in Motion and FIRST LEGO® League, unveiled its life-size LEGO® Batmobile last week at the North American International Auto Show.
Measuring 17 feet long, the LEGO® Batmobile from Chevrolet was designed to strike fear in the heart of any villain. The vehicle was inspired by Batman’s Speedwagon featured in Warner Bros.’ “The LEGO® Batman Movie,” which hits U.S. theaters on Feb. 10.
This humorous tongue-in-cheek spot promotes the movie as a “real” focus group of Lego characters, including Batman himself, gives feedback on the Batmobile and “What Kind of Person” drives the vehicle. Much to Batman’s chagrin, his fellow group members have a different view of the driver, all of which aren’t very superhero-like.
Augusto Schillaci of Reel FX directed the piece, titled “What Kind of Person,” for Chevrolet and agency Commonwealth//McCann.
