Pepsi Argentina has launched an irreverent TV campaign aimed at teenagers who are beginning to make independent decisions.
"Dare for more" is a trio of commercials that each tell a short story relating to teen life. In one, a football-playing youth eggs on an opposing forward to aim the ball at his groin instead of the goal.
In another, a girl overcomes some damaging mishaps to procure her driving licence. In the third, a boy disguises himself as a giant teddy bear in order to get near the girl he fancies.
The advertising is intended to encourage teenagers to dare to get more out of life without alienating their parents.

The commercial's "human tower", which features a waiter, a surfboarder and a unicyclist, is topped by a woman with a shopping trolley.
I Want More, a track by the band Ragg, which accompanies the ad, is being played in Target stores and at sponsored events around the US.
Target was set up in Minnesota 44 years ago, and now operates more than 1,300 outlets in 47 states.

McDonald's is attempting to build on its presence in China, with a print campaign aimed at increasing the consumption of beef.
The fast-food chain wants to change the perception of the meat as a special-occasion indulgence.
The campaign, produced by TBWA\China in collaboration with the China Health Education Association, takes a comical approach by featuring keep-fit cattle sporting dumbbells and skateboards.
Yang Yeo, the agency's executive creative director, described it as "a fresh departure from the usual".
The ads also aim to associate the McDonald's brand with quality in the minds of consumers.
