Since this was not the cut that aired, there was no audio mix done for it... hence, the silent soundtrack. You can also see the empty gray areas where the producer was to add a montage of clips from the show.
The establishing shot and the shots of the puppet in the santa costume were cut in from a holiday episode of the old show. Most of the type is nothing I'm really too happy about, but I felt it was important to keep things consistent with the old show and the established on-air look TechTV built around its promotion of it. What I'm most proud of about this spot is how we were able to capture the very unique look of the original Thunderbirds production design and art direction — which had a great colorful-yet-stodgy quality.
Most of the puppeteering was done by François Vigneault.
