Director Wayne McClammy, BBH NY, ILM, The Mill Create "Rivalry" For PlayStation, Star Wars Battlefront II
Featuring two kids--a boy who loves the Light Side and a girl aligning herself with the Dark Side--this spot promoting PlayStation and the Star Wars Battlefront II game speaks to a friendship that blossoms through rivalry.
We watch the boy and girl grow up, constantly trying to one-up each other. It begins innocently enough with the boy destroying a TIE fighter piñata but the girl strikes back by building a jaw-dropping Death Star treehouse. As they get older, their pranks ramp up, reaching the classroom, the football field, and even the high school parking lot.
Eventually, time passes and the two are all grown up, but their rivalry is still alive and strong. While sitting in his apartment, a full sized AT-AT, piloted by the girl, marches towards him. She gives him a sly wave and unleashes an epic barrage of laser fire, upping the ante. In an incredible moment of chaos and excitement, he flees and bursts into the midst of a battle on the snow-covered Starkiller Base. As TIE fighters crash out of the sky and blaster fire rains down from above, the two stare each other down on the battlefield before charging at one another.
It’s clear, there’s only one place this rivalry will be settled: in Star Wars Battlefront II on PS4.
Wayne McClammy of Hungry Man directed “Rivalry” for BBH New York, with visual effects by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) and The Mill.
