Well it would appear a lot of other people liked the liitle Pea Car from the Birdsye TV Ad too. So much so that information has sprung up from all over the place since I first noticed the new BirdsEye TV Ad on Saturday and so it gives me an opportunity to post some of that information here.
The car was designed and built by Asylum Models and Effects. Then Bakers Patterns, who produce polystyrene sculptures as well as manufacture polystyrene patterns for the automotive industry, made the poly tool on their CNC machines using Cad files produced and supplied by Asylum Models.
They then took fibre glass moulds from this then edditioned the car with spare panels to replace the damage that they would recieve falling off the car at speed. The car was then painted using 2K paint baked on in Asylums ovens.
The advert was produced by Blink
So it turns out that it’s not a real car and so we can’t buy or borrow one to do an extensive road test (sigh). Oh well never mind, at least it’s out of my system (no pun intended). Actually when I look closely, it reminds me of a Fiat 500.
