Imperial Esso shows you what it is like to change your Oil on the Moon (1986)

robot

I give this commercial big points for creativity. Not a lot of oil companies go with a space-related theme and Imperial Esso completely leans into it. Things that deserve attention in this 30 second spot include:

  • The “Lunar” Landscape
  • The Moon Vehicle
  • The low gravity oil pour
  • and of course the robot. Who resembles a modified Omnibot 2000

Pure advertising magic…
