GALLERY 03: Enix Corporation - Tropical Fish

It's hard to find original ways to incorporate footage from computer games into interesting advertising, but this ad pulls it off effortlessly. The setting, a fish tank full of tropical fish playing football, or fighting over a ball made of fish food, is so bizarre that it's hard to believe this is live action, shot on 16mm, rather than computer generated. In fact, the only image created in post-production was the football and the final frame, where the crab does his goal-saving action.
