The Escape is a brilliant but creepy four minute Mercedes commercial that will give you nightmares about Google Maps.

Directed by Carl Erik Rinsch for Ridley Scott’s RSA Films.

Visual effects created by Digital Domain.


[Molly] Dilworth painted three murals on NYC rooftops with the intention of having the artwork showing up on Google Earth. Once the paintings eventually did appear on Google’s satellite images, Dilworth ended up being disappointed that the quality of the image was not as vibrant as she had anticipated.
However, while this endeavor may not have been a complete success as an art platform, it does create an interesting opportunity to explore a new media display space: imagine if a brand used building rooftops as “pixels,” and placed its logo over a whole city block. 

Ugh.
