THE LOWDOWN The iced coffee brand Nescafe Xpress launched in Germany five years ago and is now being rolled out across Europe.
To support the drive, Beverage Partners Worldwide has signed a sponsorship deal with the McLaren Mercedes Formula One team, which features in a 30-second TV spot created by the Zurich-based agency AWC.
Filmed at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona during a test session, the McLaren driver Kimi Raikkonen takes time out to drink a can of Nescafe Xpress during a pit stop. The Ukrainian model Sasha Volkova also features in the spot as a helpful member of Raikkonen's pit crew. The ad ends with the tagline: "The pleasure that recharges. Nescafe Xpress."
In 2004, Nestle, which owns the Nescafe Xpress brand, announced a 1.4 per cent decline in global sales to 86.6 million Swiss francs.
