PENNZOIL THE LAST VIPER

"Let One of the Last Dodge Vipers Tear Your Face Off "

 Road & Track

The Last Viper film was all about capturing the true essence of the last great American sports car. This was tricky sound design-wise. We wanted to showcase the raw power of the car, but we didn't want it to sound too over-the-top. The key was understanding its voice. Like a human, it sings with a certain style and tone that’s true to its heritage.
 
With this being the last video to ever feature the Viper, we wanted to make sure that stayed intact. To achieve this authenticity we used 14 microphones. One even rigged inside the inner gearings of the car. We also featured the finest details: Exhaust flames firing from within, the down-force of the aero-wing and sparks spitting from the car. To highlight the Viper name, we even played around with actual viper snakes to enhance the sound. Helping bring out even more of the car’s animalistic nature.

Thank you "Pennzoil" for this glorious video, you did it again. Regards. P.S. I have no idea how are you gonna be able to top this, but I'm sure you'll find a way, like you always do."
