The cartoon version of the Batmobile. A super-neat toy with lots of features, but very hard to shoot.
Legally cars like this have to be hand-activated (toy-speak for pushed by hand). Nearly impossible to push a car this large for any distance and not see the pushee’s face. Why is this a problem? Because our pushee is not a kid. In fact, he’s not a he — he’s a young lady. Quite a beautiful young lady.
Lots of very precise camera operating is needed to keep the frame face-free. Watch closely — the camera choreography in this spot is flawless.
Also I love the death scene.
