SAAB Blackbird Commercial


Anonymous Content Director Joseph Kosinski in collaboration with VFX Supervisor Robert Nederhorst and Speedshape/LA have created a stunning commercial visualizing SAAB’s Aero-X Concept Car. This is the highly lauded car that debuted last February at the Geneva Motor Show with a 180 degree windshield that lifts up and forward for accessibility, akin to a jet fighter cockpit canopy.

Brilliant continuity between live action and CG scenes, beautiful environment design and a robotic companion complement the Aero-X. The latter is a nice touch as it reacts to the approaching car, a fascinating cross between the Aero-X and a bulldog. Jeffrey Kosinski’s remix of Nina Simone’s Blackbird tops it off.

Many of the creative staff, myself excluded, are the same team that worked on Kosinski’s Mezzo commercials at Sway Studio.

A microsite on the Aero-X by studio Smoke and Mirrors and produced by Perfect Fools was launched mid last year.
