WhatsApp x Mercedes AMG

Quick Turn Campaign for Meta at F1 Las Vegas

At the inaugural F1 race in Las Vegas, the Hometeam Squad united to create an exciting piece for WhatsApp and Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team, starring Team Principal, Toto Wolff!

Directed by our own Jason Oppliger, the piece follows Toto as he surprises fans along the Vegas Strip and takes them for a spin in the Totomobile!

This project brought together Hometeam’s best - a rock and roll production team to rig up the hidden camera stunt and an around-the-clock post team who got it all done on a lighting fast timeline with a quick-turn edit.

Thank you to our world-class team who brought this one across the finish line!
