!mpossible Pictures Produces Hilarious Wall-E Campaign for Discovery Channel

Publish date:

Rascally Robot Comes to Life Inside Dirty Jobs, Deadliest Catch and Mythbusters

The creative folks at

!mpossible Pictures

are celebrating their recent completion of a clever campaign which cross-promotes Discovery Channel's signature TV show franchises with Disney Pixar's latest animated feature, Wall-E. What sets this campaign apart are the clever and humorous ways in which the Wall-E character performs right within a Dirty Jobs junkyard, on the deck of a Deadliest Catch crab boat, and inside the Mythbusters’ workshop. Thanks to a graphics toolkit provided by Pixar, !mpossible Pictures was able to place the character into fanciful settings of their own design. With a bit more clever editorial and motion tracking, the result is a series of very funny spots. Through June 27th, the promos will drive viewers to special episodes featuring two-minute behind-the-scenes Wall-E vignettes on Discovery Channel. Award-winning !mpossible Pictures produces eye-popping spots, promos and branding for TV networks and advertising agencies. The team of directors, artists and producers personally collaborates with clients to develop a variety of solutions for any given project through copywriting, live action production, visual effects and animation. Among the company’s clients are Pepsi, Domino’s Pizza, Starbucks, and IBM, networks such as Showtime, Discovery Channel, A&E, and TNT and advertising agencies Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Wieden + Kennedy and JWT.
