Director of Thor: Ragnarok Invites To World of Dreams Inspired by Xbox

Microsoft has released a new video advertising the Xbox Series X console, called Lucid Odyssey. It was directed by the well-known New Zealand director Taika Waititi, and starring youtuber and streamer MoonLiteWolf.

Both Sony and Microsoft keep bending backwards to advertise their new gaming hardware. In October, for example, the Japanese company claimed that the launch of PlayStation 5 would be like the conquest of space. The team from Redmond decided to go in a slightly different direction and decided to present Xbox Series X as a platform that would power one's dreams. Here's Lucid Odyssey.

The above film was directed by Taika Waititi (a New Zealand-born filmmaker, responsible for Thor: Ragnarok, What We Do in the Shadows or the Oscar-winning Jojo Rabbit) and starring MoonLiteWolf - YouTuber and streamer. In order to make her dreams inspired by the experience of contact with video games available on Xbox Series X, she used a method called Targeted Dream Incubation (TDI). As we read in the description of the film, she entered a state called Hypnagogia, which on the one hand enables us to dream and on the other to maintain a certain level of awareness. Then, her thoughts were retained on Microsoft's console and she was asked to describe what she saw. Her descriptions were reproduced on the film.

Xbox Series X is available since November 10, this year.
