GALLERY 16: Carling Rewarding, Frustrating

Basic football fan psychology is humorously over-dramatised to show the lengths that avid football fans will go to in order to watch live games. This new campaign hopes to maintain Carling's presence in football, a game with which the brand has enjoyed a long-term relationship. The campaign capitalises on World Cup hysteria and launches during the England v Sweden World Cup game. These are well-written, amusing scenarios which feature spot-on casting and great comic timing.
