Mr. Hide Merges Man, Machine Nature for Prius

Mr. Hide and The Sweet Shop have created a fantastical human-scape in this recent spot for Prius via Saatchi & Saatch, LA. For his first spot outside of the Japanese market, Hide brings a strong sense of humanity and visually arresting nuance.

This ambitious testament to the detail-oriented Director is supported by an Art Department and Production team who enlisted 200 extras in 269 costumes to build this cleverly choreographed world. This one is meant to be watched more than once.

On a side note, Mr. Hide’s feature, Donju is set to premier at Cannes.
