(Los Angeles, California--April 16, 2014) Culver City-based visual effects house Zoic Studios morphs a seemingly ordinary lunch date into an explosive entrance in the surprisingly full throttle :30 “Arrival” for Scion out of Attik, San Francisco. The spot features the slick new 2014 Scion FR-S adeptly racing through winding roads, coming to a stop beside an outdoor café. As a young couple casually exits the car, a massive explosion ignites in their wake, leaving them nonplussed as they continue forward to meet their gaping friends.
