Clash of Clans Lava Pup Ad: James Corden & Christoph Waltz

Nothing makes a video game commercial better than a few high profile celebrities, and that’s exactly what we have below from Supercell, the developers behind Clash of Clans. Enlisting “The Late Late Show” host James Corden and Oscar-winning Christoph Waltz to turn a real Clash of Clans attack into a hilarious bedtime story.

Earlier this year Supercell released a popular Clash of Clans video featuring the “Taken” star Liam Neeson for its Super Bowl ad, and now they’re back for more.

The video above stars Christoph Waltz, an Oscar-winning actor for movies like Inglorious Bastards, Django Unchained and more, not to mention the Late Late Show host James Corden, playing the role of a little boy ready for a bedtime story.

It starts off with Corden enjoying Clash of Clans, or likely re-arming all of his traps after being attacked following the latest Clash update, when his dad (Waltz) comes in and says, “it’s time for bed”. Which is followed by Corden putting down his tablet and asking for a bedtime story. That’s when the story-teller Christoph Waltz starts telling him the exhausting and exciting story about the last Lava Pup that took down a Town Hall during clan wars. The best part of the story though, is that it’s based on a real attack which is featured at the end of the video.

The Lava Hound is one of the strongest flying troops in this strategy game, which upon dying spawns a circle of baby lava pups that continue attacking, making them difficult for attackers or defensive buildings. Occasionally one will remain standing, and that’s exactly what happens above.

Earlier this month Supercell released this biggest update in the history of the game. Adding Town Hall 11 and tons of new content to Clash of Clans for gamers who’ve enjoyed the game for roughly three years. The update has been met with lots of criticism, problems, and more, but this ad should make up for some of it.

The first celebrity video used Liam Neeson and his special set of skills from his popular movie to seek revenge on an attacker using the “revenge” button in the game, and now they’ve changed pace to a softer side. Supercell has released this cinematic ad in select global markets as of today, and we’re hearing a website will accompany it where other fellow Clashers can post similar videos. With one last Lava Pup, that last shot from a Queen, or other heroic achievements during Clan Wars or attacks.

We’re hearing this new “True Tales of Clash Achievery” will continue on the website with more films, social media events and digital ads to help hype this game even further. It’s already one of the most popular mobile games on the planet, and if videos like these continue, we’ll likely see another excellent ad during the Super Bowl in 2016.

Earlier this month Supercell released a 360 degrees virtual reality video where users can experience an attack in first person, and now this video today. We can expect more in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more details.
