PEPSICO - GOOD DEAL - GLOBAL CREDITS Project: Good deal Clients: Simon Lowden, Richard Lee, David Foulds, marketing executives, PepsiCo Brief: Promote the desirability of Pepsi Creative agency: CLM BBDO Writer: Vincent Pedrocchi Art director: Cedric Moutaud Media agency: n/s Media planner: Chris McCarthy Photographer: Vincent Dixon Retouching: Kilato Exposure: Magazines and outdoor globally, except North America
Pepsi has returned to print with a new campaign taking a tongue-in-cheek look at what people might be prepared to give up for a can of the cola.
The campaign comprises three print executions from CLM BBDO in Paris, the worldwide creative and strategic lead agency on the account outside North America.
In each ad, a character swaps his can of Pepsi for a dream situation. One features a young geek swapping his Pepsi with a lifeguard for the chance to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to a bikini-clad girl.
In another, a monkey exchanges his Pepsi for the keys to a lorry-load of bananas. In the third, a young man swaps his can for the chance to ride in a space shuttle.
The ads are the work of the New York-based British photographer Vincent Dixon.

The company has remained a family owned and operated business since its launch in Modesto, California by the brothers Ernest and Julio Gallo. In the new campaign, it emphasises that fact under the theme: "We're all family."
Shot in black and white by BBDO West, the spot features family and friends coming together and the part that Gallo wines play on such occasions.
Gallo is currently the biggest wine exporter in the US, selling its products to 85 countries. It is regarded as the first company to have introduced modern brand management and merchandising into the wine industry.
