The bumpers were commissioned by London-based company Thinkmake, and directed by Tomás García over the Buenos Aires-based company Peppermelon, who also did storyboarding and animation.[1][2] They were written by Guido Antonucci. Texturing, lighting, and rendering was done by Guillermo Kelly. These bumpers were also used to promote The Ultimate SpongeBob SpongeBash in the United States.

Trippy[3][4] A person, after reading some statistics on a paper, opens a projector, showing some statistics on the board with the light closed. When the presentation goes to the next page, the statistics start turning 3D and then, a universe appears. Little cubs, each one with a SpongeBob emotion, follow a path and it turns that the path stops at statistics, where SpongeBob is at the top.

Hypnosis[5] A person is sitting at an armchair. Suddenly, a clock appears, doing the usual hypnotizing method. After realizing that everything in the room is black/white, the window sucks everything in the room, featuring the person. Then, we get into a universe, with life vests and we see next, a jellyfish in the air, where SpongeBob is. We also see the MTV logo, with some bubbles coming out of it.
