FIREBIRD SPOT

Pontiac came back from the dead and hired us to make a commercial for the 1980 Firebird Trans Am. With the help of some very talented people we were able to make this ridiculous passion project become a reality.

BOOM BIP ZIG ZAJ

Boom Bip asked us to make a music video promoting his album Zig Zaj.  We had a really cool idea that fell through at the last minute.  What do you do when that happens?  Well of course you call special lighting effects guru Joey Jensen to come to your back yard and bring a smoke machine, a projector, and a bunch of circus lights.  Then you drink Tecate and proceed to get as weird and carried away as possible.  Good times!
