Brickyard VFX completed effects work for the latest campaign effort from Burger King promoting their new “Cheesy Tots.� Continuing their long-standing collaborations with the directors of Bob Industries, “Tongue,� and “Bed Buddy� were directed by Peter Care and Dayton/Faris respectively via agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky. Both spots follow a similar premise where the draw of Burger King’s new cheesy tots provides an irresistible draw in the wee morning hours. In “Tongue� a man wakes up to greet the day with an erect tongue led uncontrollably to Burger King’s new “hot crispy cheesy tots.� In “Bed Buddy,� a young man is taunted by his talking mattress as he swiftly abandons his cozy bed to feed his cheesy tot addiction.

In both spots, Brickyard VFX completed rig removal and clean up work in addition to creating the end tags laden with CG cheesy tots.
