Land Rover is promoting the versatility of the Freelander 2 with Claynation, a television, print and online advertising campaign using claymation. “Anywhere is Possible”, the 30 second TV advert, features the Freelander 2 as it drives across a tumultuous and ever changing plasticene terrain. We see it journey through town, across country and forest, over mountains and ploughing through snow, demonstrating the vehicle’s all-round versatility. The Land Rover UK YouTube channel includes a behind the scenes documentary and an interview with animated driver Clay Mason.
