Short Rationale: Pepsi Max today unleashes its first-­‐ever global brand campaign, with the brand defining genius in unexpected and purely awesome ways.

The digital-­‐first, content-­‐focused and socially-­‐led global campaign highlights unique experiences and passion combinations that when paired together are nothing short of genius. With an unexpected approach to consumer passion points including music, sport, technology and more, Pepsi Max is taking a bold approach to its brand proposition as it connects and expands its presence around the world.

The first in a series of digital content under the ‘Genius’ campaign in 2015, Pepsi MAX premieres “Drone Football” for both digital and traditional viewing. Pepsi MAX transforms what appears to be a normal game of five-­‐a-­‐side football by using specially designed LED lights and illuminating the pitch to create an unexpected and elevated experience. In an extra ‘Genius’ twist, a drone officiates the game, at one point even giving a yellow card to a player for rough play.

Directed by Scott Lyon, the short film was captured in real-­‐time in Barcelona with local players from the neighborhood where the filming took place. Reactions of neighbours and bystanders was authentic and genuine as Pepsi MAX created a surprising and exciting night with LED lights, as well as drone and on-­‐the-­‐ground camera technologies capturing the inventive, epic game from multiple angles.

Published: May 2015

Short Rationale: In May 2015, McDonald’s France and TBWA\Paris launch a new campaign based on the 2014 pictograms. 4 iconic products are highlighted and associated with day-to-day emoticons, such as the like or the heart.

In 2014, McDonald’s France and the agency TBWA\Paris created a range of 6 refined pictograms. Their design, both simple and unique, has placed the brand at the heart of the pop culture.

The story continues in 2015; TBWA\Paris gives a second meaning to the pictograms. This language evolves through the emoticons integration, which reflects the emotion given by those different products.

On this occasion, the brand launches a capsule collection selling exclusively at Colette, the famous Paris fashion and lifestyle store, and consisting of 6 products: t-shirts, tote bags, scarves, iPhone cases, notebooks, and postcards all made of the campaign’s universe.

The poster campaign takes place on May 5 until 20, through a national display with 28 300 faces in the street, 3 360 faces in 316 train stations, and an event poster of 148 billboards in 14 train stations. The limited collection McDonald’s-Colette is available all May at Colette.

Hair & Makeup: Sian Duke

Published: April 2015

Short rationale: Bacardi has unleashed the all-new Bacardi Carta Fuego, a red spiced rum spirit drink aged in torched barrels, best enjoyed as a shot.

Bearing in mind, ‘Fuego’ is the Spanish word for ‘fire’, Bacardi have produced a social video that has all the heat and energy that the name implies. The video, created by London’s social video specialists, RedPill, takes viewers on a journey through the taste experience of doing a shot of Fuego – all in beautiful slow motion. The flavours of cinnamon and nutmeg, the blast of heat when it first passes your lips, the silky smoothness as it goes down and the night unfolding with your friends. All captured within Carta Fuego’s exquisitely crafted bottle.

Technically, the video is almost as complex as the flavours of Carta Fuego. Using a Phantom Flex camera shooting at up to 2,500 frames per second, with seven 10,000 watt lights, a team of skilled pyros, every high-definition detail of the Carta Fuego bottle assembling itself in super slow motion was captured to end the video with a moment of true awe. #BringTheHeat
