Clip from Amarok ad Clip from Amarok ad Ogilvy Cape Town

For Ogilvy Cape Town’s ambitious new television commercial for the Volkswagen Amarok bakkie, an entire museum set, modelled on Washington’s famous Smithsonian, was built inside Cape Town Film Studios.
Velocity Films created from scratch a planetary backdrop and five diaramas - showing dinosaurs, early mankind, the first flight, the moon landings and a robotic future – and they imported 130 tonnes of sand and 26 tonnes of rock to create the interior terrain for the exhibits over which the Amarok would traverse behind the back of an unsuspecting cleaner.

Very detailed post-production work over five weeks delivered a highly credible museum look and feel.
Creative director Jacques Massardo believes all the effort was worthwhile as the finished commercial “provides an unexpected, striking and amusing way of highlighting the technological innovation and smart, tough capabilities of the Amarok”.
