McCann Belgrade created a campaign for a Serbian chain supermarkets Maxi, promoting its offering of breakfasts in a form of a music video.

“Kids know when someone is trying to fool them, so we decided to let them create the video for “SuperLunch” (“SupeRučak”). We met up one day, at their favorite hangout, turned on the cameras, cranked up the music and let the kids do what they do best – be creative,” the agency wrote in a press release. And the kids got creative indeed: there’s rapping about food, breakdancing and a fork graffiti!

OMG – A Tequila Cloud

March 28, 2017

Screen-Shot-2017-03-27-at-14.49.01.png

How do you present Mexico as an ultimate holiday destination in Berlin during the rainiest month? With a "cloud" that rains tequila of course!

Lapiz, a part of agency network Leo Burnett, programmed the cloud in a way that it rained only when it rained in Berlin. Which, as the agency explained, was pretty frequently during the time of the exhibit in Berlin. Ultrasonic humidifiers were used to vibrate tequila at a frequency that actually turned it into visible mist. This mist was then condensed into liquid form, which fell as raindrops of your more or less favourite alcoholic beverage.

The renewed visual identity follows the brand’s tradition. The main emphasis is on its recognisable red colour of which the brand has been mainly known for around the world. The packaging will continue to feature the 1870 figure, i.e. the year when the brewery has been established. Also, the brand will keep its renown pairs of medals and lions as an important part of its identity. Keeping that in mind, red and white logo in the centre is here to stay as it symbolises founders – Johannes van Marwijk Kooy, Charles de Pesters – and their love for playing pool

Give Your Brain a Break

March 24, 2017

Tomato_odmori_mozak_button-960x679.jpg

Croatian mobile operator Tomato and Bruketa & Žinić OM came out with a solution that works as a filter for negative news.

Tomato (owned by VIPnet) decided to shake things up with tariffs without unnecessary information. So the partners came up with an extension of its “Give your brain a break” and visual refreshment of the platform. Moreover, consumers can now pick tariffs without any headache. This was made possible by tv ads, outdoor and ATL as well as with fruit juices in front of the nightclubs. As an icing on the cake, they came up with a sort of “anti-BS” button which serves as a filter for negative news.

Lidl Slovenia continues its cooking series with master chef Tomaž Kavčič. It's only this time he is accompanied by a curious 8-year old Ema who will help him in a kitchen.

In a previous series by Lidl, Kavčič was battling with his Croatian colleague Mate Janković. Anyway, nobody won whatsoever. The campaign aimed to show cooking can be actually fun. With series featuring Ema and Tomaž, Lidl communicates the message that cooking can be child’s play and inspiration for a whole family.

Last year, Warc announced its Innovation Awards, which recognises innovative thinking that delivers tangible results. Among them is “Start Slovenia”, a joint project between retailer Spar Slovenia, advertising agency Formitas and media house Pro Plus. The project aims to demonstrate that success is achievable if you have a good idea and you’re ready to work hard. “Start Slovenia” involved 12 entrepreneurs who presented 12 products, which were introduced to Slovenian public. Also, they earned their place on the shelves of Interspar mega markets., dedicated to the products of “Start Slovenia”.

“Start Slovenia” is the project that is based on the concept of co-creating brand values along with its consumers in the aim of increasing the value of all brands participating in the project, via high project involvement of target consumers”, said Mitja Tuškej, partner at Formitas.

 

The winners will be announced at the end of April. See full shortlist here.

Fairytale Put on Pause

March 21, 2017

VIP-Interactivity-960x680.jpg

Advertising agency McCann Skopje and a mobile network operator Vip collaborated on a promotion of its interactive TV service. The TV commercial comes in a form of a (digital) fairytale with an unexpected twist.

The campaign – the first collaboration between the agency and the client – promoting the interactive TV service is a mixture of a Hollywood movie and a documentary that explains the service’s benefits. Mysterious woods, sleeping beauty and a prince on a white horse, you name it! But as the saying goes, wait for it…

@krojanbojan, copywriter at McCann, said the creative team’s imagination was launched by Disney heroes, brave princes, big kings and fairy princesses. “All of these stories are part of our childhood, fairytales our grandparents told us. Fairytales told and retold hundreds of times, fairytales paused somewhere between dream and reality, and then again retold the morning after. Vip’s interactive TV is one kind of digital storyteller. You can pause, record and play again and again whatever you like within the TV program,” he remarked.

OMG – Regret Nothing

March 21, 2017

hornbach-1-960x679.jpg

German DIY-store Hornbach and Berlin-based advertising agency Heimat partnered for a minute of madness, suggesting the only thing you should ever regret about your home projects is not having tried.

The TV ad opens with a boy riding his bike toward the house under construction. Apparently it’s his father happily building a venue in the middle of idyllic plain. Until when it all goes really, really wrong. The house shatters to pieces, shattering the boy’s dad underneath. But the man stands up and… starts laughing uncontrollably. He doesn’t mind that even a big shard of wood is sticking out of the side of his nose. Dirty, covered in blood and probably hurt, he bonds with his son.

Thomas Schnaitmann, Hornbach’s head of marketing in Germany and international communications, said the campaign is aimed at all people who are passionate at their summer and spring DIY projects around home. “Even when these attempts fail, you should only ever regret not having tried,” said Schnaitmann. The campaign rolled out on 17 March in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania. It features tv ad, print, out-of-home, radio, POS, and digital (website, video, display, radio, social media).
