Miami turned into Foam City

in Foam

In its new “Foam City” ad, Sony turned Miami into a huge foam bath free for all. In an attempt to do this, Sony leashed 120 million gallons of bubbles in the streets. The leading manufacturer of technology products consulted a bubble expert and built the world’s largest foam-making machine. This bubble machine pumped out more than 500,000 gallons of foam per minute and 2,000,000 liters of foam every 60 seconds. This new commercial, in conjunction with the evolution of its popular like.no.the advertising campaign, which exceeds out expectations by transforming a whole neighborhood of Miami into a bubble bath is for Sony’s cameras.

 


Sony had fully prepared for the massive shoot by building the foam machine and getting clearance from Miami and FDA certification. The downtown Miami was filled with foam during seven days. The massive 7-day shoot required involvement of many people including one documentary filmmaker, one pro photographer, 150 person crew, 200 Miami citizens with Sony cameras, and 20 journalists.
