Ahead of the global premiere of Marvel Studio’s Thor: Ragnarok, the studio teamed with Discovery’s Naked and Afraid for a co-branded campaign.

Discovery writer and producer Jesse Rugless penned three character portraits in the style of the reality show, giving each of the movie’s main characters their own “primitive survival ratings” or PSRs.

In less than a month, creative agency Magic Feather Inc., created custom 3D motion graphics and unique visual effects to blend the Naked and Afraid style with scenes from the movie.

The campaign also includes an overall integrated spot (below) and a fun featurette (above) including the movie’s Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and Cate Blanchett (Hela).

Overall co-branded campaign spot:
