For this :45 brand spot for the History Channel, Roger LA designed and cel animated from scratch an entire universe of History’s favorite stars.

Much like the origin story of a Marvel superhero movie, the spot tells the tale of six of History’s tentpole reality franchises: Ice Road Truckers, Counting Cars, Swamp People, Forged in Fire, Mountain Men and American Pickers.
