Do you want ants? Because dropping a sweet music video promo for FXX’s Archer: Nocturnal Missions block is exactly how you get ants. Metaphorically. Shut up!
The new “Danger Zone” spot takes all the classic catchphrases from the adult-targeted animated series, remixes them and pumps up the jam to 11 with the help of director Mike Diva and the team at creative production studio Lord Danger. Supplied with footage from Archer and a few restrictions — like, pretty much none of the coke-fueled Archer Vice action — the shop rejiggered the irreverent spoof series into a wonderfully absurd 60-second sound bite summary.
Archer: Nocturnal Missions is a late-night block on FXX featuring classic Archer episodes, airing on Tuesday and Friday at midnight. Season 9, Danger Island, arrives on DVD April 2, with the 10th (and final) season, Archer: 1999, set to debut on FXX next month as well.
Archer is created by Adam Reed, produced at Floyd County Prod. in Atlanta. The voice cast is led by H. Jon Benjamin as Sterling Archer, Aisha Tyler as Lana Kane, Jessica Walter as Malory Archer, Chris Parnell as Cyril Figgis, Judy Greer as Cheryl Tunt, Amber Nash as Pamela Poovey, Lucky Yates as Dr. Krieger, and Reed as Raymond Gillette.
Lord Danger is a one-stop production solutions shop which has previously masterminded viral sensations “Eat the Ice Cream” for Halo Top and the anime-inspired “Metro Manners” PSAs for the Los Angeles Metro. “Danger Zone” was exec produced by Josh Shadid, produced by Marissa Alanis, with animation & design by Dylan Locke, music by David Dahlquist & creative director Mike Diva, edited by Dan Packer.
