To develop its "go beyond" brand strategy, Land Rover is launching a web-based global community, made up almost exclusively of user-generated content, where people are encouraged to detail their own adventurous experiences.

Backing the launch of the site is a two-minute film that will be shown in cinemas and then adapted for TV, internet, mobile phones, trade shows and car dealerships.

The ad, narrated by Ewan McGregor and directed by Nicolai Fuglsig, attempts to explain the spirit behind the "go beyond" strategy.

The protagonist, a suited man driving a Land Rover, abandons his office life and travels the world. He sees a boy riding a horse bareback through a field of sheep, which morph into clouds. A drive-thru waitress climbs out of her booth into his car and he visits a South American fire festival.

The ad ends with the shot of an empty seat spinning around as McGregor says: "We can all get to this place. Just pack some courage, spirit, nerve and then go. Go awol. Go amiss. Go off the page. Go beyond."

Designed in partnership by Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R and Harrison Troughton Wunderman, the site challenges users to create lives outside of the ordinary and detail them by posting blogs, pictures, stories or anything else they want.

Karmarama has created the second set of ads in the "meatylicious" Colman's campaign it launched in January this year. The £1 million integrated campaign aims to promote the 190-year-old mustard brand's new squeezy tube.

The 30-second spot opens on the character Jeremiah Cole VIII, at the Colman's estate in Norwich. "Make your meat meatylicious with Colman's new squeezable English mustard," he says. He then dives into a crowd, which chants "squeezy" over and over again.

The ad is backed by three press executions featuring the squeezy Colman's tube. One reads: "A heavy squeeze is very blokey but careful lads it's no less pokey!"

Hooper Galton has created a press campaign to launch a new range of salads by Florette.

Called A Taste Of ..., the salads contain mixed leaves, herbs and country-specific sauces, such as green Thai dressing (A Taste of Thailand) and orange vinaigrette (A Taste of Morocco).

Each ad tells a story but gives the reader the opportunity to create their own adventure by leaving gaps in the narrative for them to add their own words.

One execution begins: "As I stood on the balcony, I felt a gentle___caress me. Bangkok, like a jewelled ___, lay glittering before my eyes." The second execution reads: "Alive with colour, vibrant with ___. As I strode into town I knew my ___ looked good. It was one of those perfect ___."

In a bid to increase consumption of its Extra Light mayonnaise, Hellmann's is targeting existing consumers with a summer campaign consisting of direct marketing and a microsite.

Created by Craik Jones Watson Mitchell Voelkel, the DM pack contains a utensil called the "scraper outerer", which consumers can use to get every last remnant of mayo out of the jar.

The mailer also includes two 30p coupons and several recipes under the strapline: "It's amayonnaising what a dollop can do."

The new autumn/winter range campaign for Clarks targets children and their parents at the same time.

The two TV commercials, created by St Luke's, aim to appeal to a child's sense of fantasy while stirring nostalgia in their parents.

In "balloon", a seven-year-old boy plays keepy-uppy around the house with a balloon. The ad features the soundtrack A Town Called Malice by The Jam, and ends as the boy kicks the balloon out of a window.

In "horse", a girl rides an imaginary steed around her garden and jumps over a homemade fence.

Last year, Clarks suffered its first sales decline in a decade, as group turnover fell 3.4 per cent to £921 million, while operating profits fell 16.7 per cent to £51.6 million.

The pan-European online game kicks off initially in English and Italian, to be followed later by Dutch, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese versions.

The ten-level game invites users to guide an animated three-dimensional character called Mr P through a minefield of Pringles cans, picking up crisps and ingredients on the way.

On completing each phase, the player moves on to the next flavour level and the best scores win a place on a global league. To drive awareness, players are also encouraged to start their own leagues and forward the game to their friends.
