Sound Lounge Goes a Lap for Nascar

Publish date:

The Brief:
Rob DiFondi of New York-based Sound Lounge mixes the killer sounds of crashing cars and scraping metal for NASCAR and Nationwide Insurance. As the speeding vehicles race around the track, every bang and bump is documented by a popup that displays what will need to be replaced in order to fix the damage. We can almost smell the beer and gasoline as we become up close and personal fans of the racing death traps in all their screeching, crushing, clanking, spinning, crunching glory.
