Well check out this video:

I've seen that commercial many times, and every re-watch it gets better. What's sad is this commercial is about 1000 times better than the 3 D&D movies put together.

You'll probably be interested in Making of: "Caverna do Drag„o" - a sort of behind-the-scenes documentary video (and marketing platform) about this commercial.

It was evidently a comprehensive short film or mini-movie, a lot more story and footage than was shown in the commercial. My understanding is that there are (or were) two versions: a standalone "episode-length story film" (basically a fan film made by an advertising agency) intended to complete the unfinished story of the characters from the old animation, and an edited commercial (which we've all seen) using some segments from the "story" version plus all the footage involving the Renault Outsider (which the advertising agency was paid to advertise).

Made in Brazil or Argentina, unfortunately Google Translate and YouTube subtitles won't help those of us who don't speak the language. (I can understand some Spanish, badly, but not much of the language in this video. I think it's Portugese or something else.)

Please share a link to the "story" version if you're able to find it online. I suspect it will be hard to find (if it actually exists) because of copyright stuff.

That makes a lot of sense -- I thought it was not only an odd approach for a commercial, but a lot more expensive than the usual "beautiful but supposedly regular people just driving around" approach car commercials more often take.

It would be wonderful if they could get voice dubbing in English. Hell, I bet if they crowd sourced it for a few thousand bucks they'd get the money (assuming it wouldn't be that expensive to dub over the voices... might be hard for all I know).

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Strongheart, Warduke, and Kelek I always associated them with Mystara.


Being that I'm not overly familiar with that setting...

why is being a wizard like being a drow? both are likely to find a dagger in the back from a rival or one looking to further his own goals, fame and power

Learned Scribe bloodtide_the_red,

Not only is that commercial awesome, but, that actress playing Diana the Acrobat is preposterously hot! I will have that on the rewatch list on the regular! :)

Best regards,
