Tool's Geordie Stephens Makes It Rain for Nintendo

The digital invades the real world in this spot for Nintendo Wii's "The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Swords" directed by Tool Director Geordie Stephens via GS&P.

In "Falling Swords," the forecast takes a turn for the fantastic as a sunny, urban landscape sees a shower of glimmering CG weaponry. Thousands of swords and shields rain down on the city, until we see a young gamer pull a blade from the wreckage of his coffee table. As he takes a few practice swings at his TV, the sword morphs into a Nintendo Wii controller - our gamer is now transformed.
