“The Ultimate Break”


If you haven’t already seen this stunning viral from Paris-based Akama Studio, this won’t be the last time. And rightly so. “The Ultimate Break” is an exquisitely crafted CG short film disguised as a promo for a French Kit Kat website (of all things).

Brought to us by JWT Paris and Wanda Productions—whose animation showcase is a destination in itself.

Beautifully animated indeed. But um . . . I don’t get it. You have a kitkat and you go to heaven? Is there a deadly toxin therein? ARE KITKAT’S SAFE???


pretty cool, especially the gal but the story is so incomplete…

I loved it. I thought the animation was superb, but I wish that you found out what was going on…


gorgeous, nice concept. it certainly was the ultimate break. could have been shorter and more poignant tho.
