The Honda Accord Hybrid’s green credentials are the focus of a new US commercial that mixes live-action and kitsch animation. Directed by Passion Pictures’ award-winning animation director Gaelle Denis, and live-action directing team Sebastian Hedin and Roderick Fenske (also known as Acne), the spot begins with a regular-looking guy getting into his smart Honda Accord Hybrid car.

As he drives along, we become aware that the car is being followed by a cloud of colourful butterflies. A cute 2D bluebird is attracted to the car and flies alongside with the driver.

As the car reaches the open countryside, the world around it explodes into life – trees come into blossom, racoons, squirrels, frogs and even pink bears start to dance in the woodlands while the sun smiles in the sky.

Pursuing the driver enthusiastically all the way to his parking space at work, the animated wildlife surrounds the car. Having got out of the car, our driver is hugged by a tree much to his embarrassment and to the astonishment of a co-worker.
