Budweiser Drones Swarm the 2018 FIFA World Cup

World Cup 2018 ad fever begins with this massive spot by RSA director Jake Scott and Manhattan VFX house Blacksmith dispatching beer delivery drones to soccer fans around the planet including Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

The smart creative choice to anchor the 100-second epic on the story of a lost and lonely little-drone-that-could character ensures the film’s emotional quotient stays intact for the duration.
