Director Filip Engstrom, BBH NY Team On PlayStation VR "Star Wars" Promo
PlayStation and BBH NY unveiled their new campaign to promote PlayStation VR, the breakthrough virtual reality headset which debuts in stores on October 13.
The first spot focuses on the Star Wars franchise. As a gamer dons the PSVR headset, the first clue of what’s to come is when a cup on the coffee table begins to tremble on a table, as though an earthquake is imminent. Quickly the action escalates, as the entire living room begins to shatter, with furniture and walls themselves being sucked away with cyclonic force. As the gamer’s entire surroundings are pulled into this vortex, he emerges again, now in a new world, transformed into a Rebel Fighter pilot of an iconic Star Wars X-wing, soaring through a galaxy far, far away. The spot concludes with the tag line, “Greatness Awaits.”
