Hey look I'm ansering myself (mom said it would give me worts). After some research I found them at AWN but I've only looked at one so far because they take forever to dounload but well worth the wait there at:

But I still want to know if there gonna air in L.A. area...

Wow - these are some killer ads. What scares me, though, is how far in advance Checkers would have to plan their sales to make animated commercials about them...

Hey, thanks Sean, I've been wanting to see these!

You are quite welcome...I have now looked at all five they have posted at AWN about 50 times each and I'm sorry if I sound like a slobbering fanatik but I am amazed at how good these are. I know a little about how hard it is to make a comercial let alone an animated spot and have it come out anywhere near your vision because of all the %#$@&ers that get in your way...He not only is a great artist animator and film maker but he must also have great ability to make it through the maze of death that is the production process in this country...

Duh! I didn't even notice that there were more pages - only watched the first two. Ah, well, c'est la guerre... I checked 'em all out now - whew. These ads had some beautiful little moments. The binocular guy working the burger stand in the first one - made me wonder about young Trevor's first summer job. And the way Holly's lips peel back when she fires up the afterburners - mmm, takes me right back to 'Gravity'. Of course, you can't do a lot great stuff in half a minute when you've also got to hawk a product, but you can make it look really, really slick. Takes me back to the heady days of the CindyFlux Pepsi commercial. I'm always astonished at the increase in quality possible when you give a great animator a wad of cash and thirty seconds. Just imagine what we'd get if we threw Peter a really huge wad of cash and a couple reels of movie film and said "fill 'em up!"

Ever check out any of the other artists? I went a little farther and checked out Raol Servais, his work is stark, Kafkaesque, depressing, in other words it reminds me of my childhood. He is quite a genius, and he has a little movie called, "Chromophobia"....
