Citroën Dominoes

Citroën is promoting the new Citroen C5 Tourer’s hydractive suspension in “Dominoes”, a television commercial produced by Psyop. The spot, rich with CGI effects, presents a car travelling through an elegant and poetic world made up of dominoes for Citroën. Each domino is a little world all on its own, a little microcosm with its own weather and topology, each linked to the next by the road and Citroën traveling upon it. You never know what will happen in the road.

    This commercial had potential but it looked very plain and dull with a few exciting domino animations.
