In a time when the auto industry is constantly pushing boundaries with innovations and design, Mercedes-Benz stands out not just for its state-of-the-art vehicles but also for its audacious forays into new media. 

Enter Mill+. Recognised globally for pioneering some of the most groundbreaking cinematic experiences, Mill+ showcases its storytelling prowess and ability to help brands speak, authentically, to the esports audience and gaming enthusiasts in this collaboration. Set in a futuristic Seoul, meticulously built in CG, they invite viewers to follow a young heroine navigating her thrilling journey to the Gocheok Sky Dome. Under the adept guidance of Mill+ Director, Tim Fox, the full CG spot seamlessly integrates the dynamic allure of the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV with the vivid, fantastical world and characters of League of Legends.

Blending the cutting-edge with the fantastical, especially with brands of such stature, was an unparalleled experience. While we missed featuring our heroine’s flip-flops, a soaring dragon more than made up for it!
