Big Things Come in Small Packages in California Lottery’s Super Ticket Spot

Casanova//McCann teams up with Pet & Flo through Slim Pictures to create sleight-of-hand production magic

Big Things Come in Small Packages in California Lottery’s Super Ticket Spot

To launch the California Lottery’s Super Ticket, which boasts the biggest jackpot prize in the State’s history, Casanova//McCann teamed with Pet & Flo through Slim Pictures to capture an 18-wheeler truck driving across California carrying a gigantic Scratcher….and a clever surprise when the truck reaches its convenience store destination.

Production sleight-of-hand creates the illusion of a real truck, without implementing CGI or other post production. “Once we decided the way we wanted to shoot, the real challenge began,” said Fernando Poblete, Casanova//McCann Creative Director. “Every set-up was only good for a couple of seconds because as soon as the truck moved a little too much, the illusion was taken away.” 

The spot, shot over two days in Los Angeles, broke in mid-April supported by radio, digital, social and TV integrations where the truck makes live appearances. Casanova//McCann is McCann Worldgroup’s Hispanic agency.
