GALLERY 12: Frisk - Glass, Jockey

These bizarre executions aim to reposition a slightly staid product (an energy-giving mint). Aiming at the Japanese market, which accounts for over 50% of sales, the ads show strange tests being conducted by stern-faced Eastern European scientists. Belgian directors Lionel Goldstein insisted on grubby styling and odd casting, including a seven foot tall ex-basketball player. Apparently, Wieden & Kennedy is planning TV spots based on the same scripts, which will be restyled to resemble '80s TV series "Knight Rider" - a big hit in Japan.
