Entering a location at loads a video of the comfortable weather guy experiencing the local weather conditions in the style of the beach ad.

For example, today in London, he appeared with a drink in the snow. In a video for hotter climes, "comfortable weather guy" cools himself down by "sexily" rubbing an ice cube from his drink against his body.

There is a selection of 80 videos covering both weather type and severity on the website, which was built by Wieden & Kennedy New York and works on most tablets and mobile devices, as well as PC.

The main intro video is once again accompanied by ‘Hit or Miss’ by Odetta from the beach TV ad.

The copywriter for the campaign was Nick Kaplan, the art director was Jeff Dryer and the director was Tim Godsall at Biscuit Filmworks.

The executive creative directors were Scott Vitrone and Ian Reichenthal.
