    Lenovo “Virus” is a 30-second spot that portrays a virus virtually infecting and destroying the Lenovo Thinkpad computer that instantly “heals” itself with the help of the new Virus Recovery button.

    The Embassy created this macro photo-like commercial with extensive use of Maya particle simulation software.
