We’ve created many different CG animals through the years, but thanks to the German Insurance Company ARAG and ad agency Fluent we got the opportunity to create two brand new species: the sneaky, passive-aggressive Miethai (“Rent shark” / Rent racketeer) and the boorish and rather aggressive Hornochse (“Bully”/Ox). We’ve all met them in their human form, but in these new commercials we see them as they really are!

Goodbye Kansas designed,  created and animated the CG heads of these characters, in close collaboration with director Claas Ortmann and production company Big Fish.

We don’t make dreams come true.

We make them real. And if you like what you’ve seen us do for others, imagine what we could do for you. Because what we’ve done is only the starting point. We are constantly reinventing our expertise and using it in previously unknown ways, blurring the edges between what’s real and what’s possible. All you have to do is watch, because we’re not just aiming for the rainbow – we want to go beyond. Contact us
