Coca-Cola is relaunching Schweppes with its biggest investment in the brand to date. The drinks brand is making a comeback to cinema and TV screens with the launch of a new through-the-line campaign, seven years after the brand was last on air.
Developed by Mother, the campaign positions Schweppes as the definitive mixer and adult soft drink range, using the new brand strapline: "Sch ... you know how." Three executions showcase ordinary people mixing drinks in extraordinary ways inspired by the Schweppes "know how". The quirky ads feature a memorable soundtrack from 1943 - Cocktails for Two by Spike Jones and the City Slickers.
The promotion will target consumers as well as the lucrative on-trade sector, heightening competition with Schweppes' arch-rival Britvic.

Euro RSCG London has created a global TV and cinema campaign to promote Peugeot's HDi diesel engines.
Entitled "307 surprising diesel", the ad demonstrates the smoothness of the Peugeot 307 HDi. The spot opens with a little girl meticulously painting at what looks like a table. She dips her paintbrush in a glass of water resting beside and carefully paints in the picture, before resting her paintbrush in her mouth. As the camera draws back, it reveals that the girl is in fact sitting in the back seat of the Peugeot 307 HDi. The commercial ends with the line: "The new smoother 307 HDi. The surprising diesel."
Peugeot is fourth in the UK car market, with a share of 7 per cent.

THE LOWDOWN Mother and Orange have broken ad-making convention in their latest work for Orange Animals packages.
Selected Orange customers were sent a cryptic text message, inviting them to take part in the filming of "a secret project in a stunning location". The cast for the television ad was then selected via a series of Pop Idol-style auditions.
The ad itself is set in the desert in Spain and features customers displaying animal traits designed to demonstrate that it is the little differences that make us who we are. The customers are set a range of tasks which bring out their true colours; highly sociable is signified by a dolphin; those who use the phone as a tool are raccoons; a canary is someone who likes to chat for long periods; while those who want extras, such as e-mail and mobile content, are panthers.

Entitled "let's dance", the viral shows the power of fruit and features a little dancing robot and a Roberts radio powered by the electrical currents of a couple of hundred oranges and lemons. The fruits then line up in a row and connect together and perform the robot dance.
