[Reprise] Lobo’s “Go Miniman Go”

We posted this epic ode to Lego’s miniman a few days ago. But we’ve since gotten our hands on a higher resolution version, and it’s worth checking out again.

Lobo (repped by The Ebeling Group) did a bang-up job on the transitions, with each scene flowing effortlessly into the next. The fluidity is so smooth, in fact, that it’s easy to take it for granted when watching it the first couple times. But when you start to think about all the planning it took to pull this off, the appreciation deepens and the spot takes on a new shine.

The soundtrack from Paulo Beto is also noteworthy. Like the visuals, it slides from motif to motif with charming ease.
