Los Angeles-based fan experience-focused agency, The Famous Group, pulled out all the stops for this one-minute game open for the NFL’s Tennessee Titans.

The open typically only runs in Nashville’s Nissan stadium before games, but due to not being able to have fans in the stands, in September the team posted it across their social media channels, including Twitter and Instagram, where it quickly surpassed 120,000 views.

To create the spot during the pandemic without the ability to film players, The Famous Group partnered with Los Angeles-based drone company, LA Drones, to showcase the city of Nashville. The Famous Group and LA Drones used five specialized drones covering 12 unique locations, representing the Titans’ star players.
