Dr. Evil is “Back For Good,” which is the title of this General Motor’s Super Bowl spot starring actor/comedian Mike Myers. Directed by Tim Kirkby via Bootleg Films, London for McCann Detroit, the commercial has Dr. Evil taking over General Motors. But in order to rule the world, he first has to save the world, reducing the global carbon footprint via GM’s line of electric vehicles.

Accompanying Myers as Dr. Evil are his Austin Powers co-stars including Rob Lowe (as “Young Number Two”) and Seth Green (“Scott Evil”).

Visual effects house on the Big Game commercial was AFX Creative. Nicole Fina, exec producer at AFX, noted. “This campaign started off with select VFX needs and grew to include VFX in every single shot,” she says. “We created the floor, the ceiling, a fleet of CG cars, CG stairs, animating robots, tricked-out walls, multi-leveled floors, backgrounds and so much more.”
