Soul puts the focus on orange for Fanta animated 'vinyl' ad

Coca-Cola is backing its Fanta brand with an animated TV campaign, created by Soul, which is designed to appeal to children and adults.

The 30-second ad continues the "Why can't everything orange taste like Fanta?

Another ad will be rolled out for the Icy Lemon variant in the summer, but the Coca-Cola Great Britain marketing director, Charlotte Oades, said it was important that the orange flavour was the main focus of the campaign.

she said.

The spot was written by Ben Steiner and art directed by Olly Pugh. It was directed by Geoffroy de Crecy through Partizan.
