UPDATE: The "Adrenoldae" ad has apparently been pulled from the web, although there's no official word yet on why, or when/if it will reappear. Instead, DreamWorks Animation has released a new featurette that takes a look at the Indy 500 with interviews with cast and crew:
Just in time for this weekend’s Indy 500 race, here’s an ad for an energy drink endorsed by Guy Gagne (voiced by Bill Hader), the famous race car driver in DreamWorks Animation’s forthcoming Turbo.
From the makers of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, Turbo is a high-velocity 3D comedy about an underdog snail whose dreams kick into overdrive when he miraculously attains the power of super-speed. But after making fast friends with a crew of streetwise, tricked-out es-car-goes, Turbo learns that no one succeeds on their own. So he puts his heart and shell on the line to help his pals achieve their dreams, before Turbo-charging his own impossible dream: winning the Indy 500.
Watch the commercial, below:
Directed by David Soren, who shares screenwriting credits with Robert Siegel and Darren Lemke, the film features the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Ken Jeong, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Snoop Dogg, er, Lion, Samuel L. Jackson, and Michael Peña, who voices Tito in the film and will be waving the green flag on Sunday to start the race!
Turbo will race into U.S. theaters on July 17, 2013.
