Duck Brand has announced Duck Tron as the winning entry of their “Stuck On Duck” crowdsourced video contest.
The winning 30-second spot features a stop-motion recreation of the light cycle battle from Disney’s 1982 sci-fi film Tron using multi-color rolls of the fix-anything tape. The project was produced by Ryan Pamplin of San Francisco ad agency Ryactive and features a cameo with web-celeb Jay Maynard, who’s better known as Tron Guy. Maynard earned the nickname Tron Guy after posting photos of himself in a homemade electroluminescent costume styled after the film’s programs. While the costume itself was revolutionary, it was the form-fitted “adhesion” on Maynard’s pear-shaped physique that earned him notoriety.
