A whimsical what-if shows NBA superstar Robin Lopez chasing his dream of making a Godzilla tribute film in a new campaign created by ESPN CreativeWorks. Produced by ArtClass and directed by Shaun Collings, a longtime collaborator of the agency, Robzilla: King of the Mascots ingeniously connects the worlds of pro basketball and blockbuster monster movies. Forged by giants of their respective fields – Robin Lopez and Godzilla, Warner Brothers and ESPN, ArtClass and Shaun Collings – the co-branded films broadcasting on ESPN and ABC tied-in to the May 31st release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Fun and funny, with its own bit of cinematic flair, the spots portray Chicago Bulls player Robin Lopez as a Godzilla super-fan and aspiring filmmaker. Robin’s journey to create his movie Robzilla: King of the Mascots features hilarious cameos from ESPN anchors and NBA mascots, and even Robin’s brother Brook.
