GALLERY 11: Coke - Mer Blaxploitation, Film Noir

The last Mer spot we showed featured a woman giving birth to a pear. For its latest campaign however, agency Forsman and Bodenfors has replaced its surreal approach with a cinematic style. And yet the tongue-in-cheek attitude has thankfully been retained. In 'Blaxploitation' we see a 70s-style police chase, complete with split screens and groovy soundtrack, with the product used to revive the chubby cop. Meanwhile 'Film Noir' is a twisted take on a 1940s love story. The agency has managed to make the product the hero while ensuring the ads remain amusing and entertaining.

1 Why creative people have lost their way

What better way to kick off Campaign's relaunch than with another think piece on the current failings of our industry, written by an embittered, pretentious creative who misses "the way things used to be"...
