GALLERY 05: Mountain Dew - Davey & Goliath

Mountain Dew's latest irreverent poke at genres is aimed at Davey and Goliath, the morality-teaching animated series produced by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America in the 1960s and 1970s. However, in this version, the moral of the story is that you shouldn't give your Mountain Dew up to anyone, not even your Dad. The spot makes great use of stop-frame animation and the makers have de-saturated the film and added grain to create authenticity. It was a major challenge to re-create the puppets, sets and lighting.
