Mesmerizing Trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Featuring Kevin Spacey

On Wednesday, April 30, Complex and other various online publications released a leaked audio file found on SoundCloud that includes audio of a man that sounds exactly like actor Kevin Spacey. This familiar voice can be heard delivering a powerful sermon sounding speech focused around the various facets of democracy and it’s shortcomings in the free world. As an avid “House of Cards” fan, my ears perked up immediately and I was excited to hear about this mystery project of his.

A week later, Ant Farm, one of Hollywood’s leading entertainment and brand marketing agencies and employer to Digital Media Alumni of FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, released a mesmerizing trailer for “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare”. The connection? Kevin Spacey. The trailer is framed around his powerful speech on democracy while simultaneously giving the audience a glimpse of the game play that includes futuristic battlegrounds, where both technology and tactics have evolved to usher in a new era of combat. Check out the trailer for yourself below.



Ant Farm continues its work on Activision’s “Call of Duty,” having created the lead assets for every iteration of that game series since the first installment. Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, Ant Farm is a full-service advertising and marketing agency for major entertainment and consumer brands.  A wholly-owned subsidiary of Omnicom’s DDB, Ant Farm conceives a unique story for each brand, and executes impactful campaigns to achieve maximum exposure.  The agency is especially renowned for its rich heritage in creating high-impact movie trailers for such major motion pictures and film franchises as Paramount’s “Transformers,” Marvel’s “Iron Man,” New Line Cinema’s “The Lord of the Rings,” and DreamWorks’ “Shrek,” among many others.

They were a big winner at last month’s 2014 Game Marketing Awards held in San Francisco. Having been nominated for nine awards, the creative agency won a total of seven honors, including a Gold Award for Best Showing at a Trade Event: E3 Experience Activision/Blizzard Entertainment. Ant Farm has also won multiple Effie Awards, numerous Clio Key Art Awards, and a Cannes Lion says the agency’s co-president, Rob Troy.
