Superfad Goes Raving Rabbids

Publish date:

Superfad recently completed a promo spot for Ubisoft’s Raving Rabbids “Travel In Time� party game that lives up to the promise: a blast in the past. To truly understand the character traits and distinct attributes Superfad Director Richard Hickey traveled to France to meet with the Ubisoft game developers. He learned the Do’s and Don’ts of the lovable chaos-inducers and then returned to Superfad to delve deep into the production. The result is a supercharged animated spot that is rife with hilarious slapstick and Rabbid induced mishaps. Using pop culture cinematic references and a sincere appreciation for animated narrative, the spot takes viewers on a journey of time travel, Rabbids style. To view:
