There were very specific dance moves that were very recognizable to Thriller. The director picked the moves and well, there you have it.
At this point, the look of the individual geckos weren't finalized. So I used one, generic gecko in all of the boards. If I had the time, I was supposed to work with Digital Domain's animation team to help with visual development, but time was really limited and I didn't have the chance.

So, the commercial finally aired during the 2nd quarter of the Superbowl!
You can watch the video on the special website that's below. When you go to the home page, just click on the 'superbowl ad' link at the top.
If you wanted to actually download the commercial to your hard drive, I have it hosted on my website.
Here's the link:

So, onto the game.
I knew NY could pull it off for some reason. I knew that if they kept it close, they'd have a chance and I don't even watch football. I know that 99% of people(that don't live in NY) didn't give the Giants much of a chance, but that's why games are played.

Fun and crazy to work on....and as many links on the internet say, Naomi Campbell will be in the commercial.
Below is a link to a teaser that is up.
Click on 'superbowl ads' and then it's the first teaser.
I haven't seen the final version of the commercial at all, so let's all hope it's good!
