Last year, while writing about the maturity of argentinean digital industry i came upon a campaign for Paso de los Toros, a bitter tonic water. This year they're back, with some extended features that takes the user to an interesting online-offline-online-offline trip:
As part of a new campaign from Rexona (Sure in the UK, Degree in the US) launching a deodorant called V12 (which is based on the concept of cars, speed and tuning you into the best version of yourself), we released this Facebook app called "The ultimate Alter Machine" a few weeks ago, where you can complete a little quiz that allows you to see your personality in the form of a massively tuned car.
If you ever wondered which car would you be, give it a try, you might like that :)
This is an hilarious and brilliant way to promote your beer in Argentina, by Del Campo, Nazca Saatchi and Saatchi for Andes. Any description i provide wouldn't be worthy of the campaign itself, so check this video out to see what is it about:
This one is a one from us that we did last autumn for Rexona Teens, a deodorant for teenagers that, being always the same product, changes its tagline every year, "Dance and teens", "Love and teens" or, in this case "Fans and teens".
To support this last one we created a little promo using a Facebook app called "Your line of fans", that allows you to show if you're a better fan than others, and you're required to create the longest line to support your favorite artist, inviting your friends to be formed in your line (and then the friends of your friends), so you could use the line to try it to be the longest and also to meet new friends that share with you the same interest in that artist.
In the end, the longest line (whoever the artist is) could get some tickets to attend some shows from that artist (looks like Jonas Brothers rule for teens) Here's a little video explaining the project:
Luli Fernandez is one of the most beautiful stars in argentinean television and now she's also starring on this website called "Sin pelo no es lo mismo" ("without hair it isn't the same) done by BBDO Argentina for Head and Shoulders shampoo (emphazising the hair protection factor), where you have to pick the right lines to get a date with her.
Nicely done and making a good use of 3D sound, what a pity it's only in spanish, would be nice if there was an english version or at least some subtitles to get its audience bigger.
In Brazil, Mentos has recently launched a retro style viral campaign to promote its Power Kiss candies. A teaser video posted on Youtube promotes a series of lessons to be learned following the "Kamasutra do Beijo" (kiss Kamasutra) instructions.
Guess what ... Some other racing games ! But this time you don't drive usual cars.
In the Red Bull one, you drive a soap box.
This site is pretty nice and the 3D environment is very well produced. The visuals and the all atmosphere really remind me of Little Big Planet ones. You can build your own soap box, your own track, customize your avatar, and compete against others. The game is to promote the soap box races that Red Bull is running across Europe.
This one is a one of us and is a good excuse for talking about something else, so we're pretty happy that could release it in the end. The new product from Rexona in Mexico is called Rexona Energizing, it's supposed to energize you every time you use it, being this the teaser used for the beginning of the campaign:
So we got in an energetic mood and decided to team with Carlos Ulloa and his new company to create EnergyLab, a brief story about how so much energy was contained inside that bottle.
In Brazil, LG has launched an online campaign that puts Twitter at the center of the action to promote a fridge model called Top Mount. Four cameras capture live a fridge and the food inside it. Users can watch the live stream on the Web and "order" the fresh food using their Twitter accoun t and messaging @LGTopMount. The first who tweets the request will receive a home delivery the day after (only if he/she lives in the Sao Paulo area).
Don't ask me to clarify the mechanism because I had to ask twice to understand it. I definitely miss something in this action. I thought there was a challenge to guess the next food in the fridge in order to win, but this is not the case. It's not a guessing game. It's just about staring at a fridge where nothing happens and be fast to tweet when the food in it gets changed. To be totally sincere, I think the concept is rather week if not even silly. But still, I thought it was worth sharing it because the LG project can inspire new (better) campaigns with an integrated functional/interactive use of Twitter.
