Mobil – Bottoms to The Road

Loading the player...

This advertisement uses stop motion animation to animate people as if in invisible cars – they sit with their bottoms to the road and advance along the tarseal as if driving.

One man drives bumpily and leaves a trail of bolts and other loose car parts behind him, while another overtakes him, driving smoothly.

"Don’t risk undue wear and tear by using the wrong oil," advises the voiceover.
