VTNZ: Road Commander gets a WoF

Embed Video
VTNZ and FCB have launched the company's new 'We're on your side' brand platform with a series of TVCs featuring a new (anti) hero, 'Road Commander'.
Unlike your local mechanic, VTNZ is completely unbiased and independent. Because unlike your mechanic, VTNZ don't do the repairs when they warrant your car. So, FCB challenged themselves to create a campaign front-person who would represent the most significant challenge for VTNZ to pass. Enter Road Commander, a battle-hardened road warrior from a post-apocalyptic world.

Road Commander’s battle wagon; 'Fallen Angel' takes the shape of a classic '57 Chevrolet Bel Air, mixed with a four-wheel drive post-apocalyptic monster truck. The final design was headed up by FINCH directors The Bobbsey Twins from Homicide, Guy Treadgold production designer and Peter Pound, head vehicle designer from Mad Max: Fury Road.

Road Commander's adventures can be enjoyed over the next 18 months as the campaign rolls out with an initial series of five TVCs along with radio, out-of-home and social.
