The epic around-the-world journey by renowned artist and naturalist Robert Bateman and biologist/ecologist Bristol Foster is revisited in this campaign by Land Rover. The inspiring marketing project celebrates the company's 70th anniversary. It includes a three-minute video, produced by Wonder Screen for Spark44, that touches upon the exciting road trip which took place in 1957 and lasted 14 months. The content is of particular significance since, during their around-the-world journey, Bateman and Foster were driving a custom-built Land Rover Series 1, aptly nicknamed the 'Grizzly Torque.'
The video is a combination of archival and modern footage. The fact that this trip took the two Canadians 60,000 kilometers through 19 countries on four continents is truly breath-taking and the excitement of the iconic around-the-world journey will truly inject some wanderlust value into the Land Rover brand.
