Brickyard VFX recently created CG cars that appear alongside live-action counterparts and added graphics to other live action cars in a new NASCAR-themed ad campaign for Toyota Racing that spans TV, print and the web. Titled “Sponsafier,” the campaign invites NASCAR fans to get involved with the season and drivers by ‘sponsifying’ a Toyota Racing car. A series of three hilarious :30 TV spots (and one :60 combined version) introduces the concept and drives fans to the website, where they can design a custom skin for the race-version Toyota Camry that could earn them a trip to a NASCAR all-star race.
