THE LOWDOWN

Puss in Boots, the feline hero of Charles Perrault's 17th-century fairy tale, is making a comeback in a new ad campaign that pays tribute to the character's original interpretation.

The national press and outdoor campaign is for Saniterpen, the French pet-care company.

Callegari Berville Grey in Paris devised the campaign from an unpromising brief to promote Saniterpen's pet-odour product.

Six people worked for three days to create the ad, which appears with almost no retouching.

A New York fashion model was hired to recreate "Puss". She had to spend half-a-day being made up before the shoot, which lasted four hours.

The final ad was chosen from 400 shots taken by the Spanish photographer Eugenio Recuenco.

THE LOWDOWN

Thierry Henry encourages people to show off their sports skills in Reebok's latest internet campaign.

The former Arsenal striker, now at Barcelona, is shown marking out a white box on the road. Other people join in as it becomes apparent that the boxes have been created to showcase some grassroots skills, ranging from skipping to juggling.

As the spot draws to a close, Henry, having shown off his fancy footwork, leaves his box, signalling that it's free for the next person.

Henry has been the face of the European brand in Europe since April 2006, when he defected from Reebok's arch-rival Nike.

THE LOWDOWN

MTV Tr3s, the US satellite and cable station for young Hispanics, has launched new advertising aimed at identifying itself more closely with its audience.

The campaign is promoting the channel's Top 20 Countdown show, but also attempts to connect with Latino Americans by celebrating their passion and hybrid identity.

The spot juxtaposes live action with animation and features brightly coloured dolls that manage to get into the most unlikely places.

Established in 1998, MTV Tr3s features lifestyle series, customised video playlists, news and documentaries celebrating Hispanic culture, music and artists. It targets bilingual Hispanics aged between 12 and 34.

THE LOWDOWN

Ecovidrio, the non-profit organisation that manages Spain's glass recycling process, has launched new TV advertising that aims to stigmatise people who refuse to heed the recycling message.

The Remo agency in Madrid has created the campaign, which takes viewers inside a glass bottle to get a distorted view of people who still throw their glass bottles in bins rather than recycling them.

A woman putting on her make-up and a man singing in the bath are among the characters portrayed as ugly and deformed when viewed through a bottle.

All the spots ask viewers: "How do you expect glass to see you if you treat it like rubbish?"

Ecovidrio, which is financed by the country's packaging companies, is pledged to raise awareness of the importance of recycling and the need to reduce waste in order to safeguard the environment.
