Exposure: Online, TV, print
Cutwater has created a viral for Ray-Ban that invites consumers to "colourize" their lives by purchasing a pair of glasses from the new summer collection.
The viral features a very clever chameleon walking across a counter top. As the chameleon moves, someone places different coloured Ray-Bans in front of it, causing the creature to change its colour to that of the glasses.
A TV campaign, also created by Cutwater, runs alongside the viral, featuring colourful imagery such as a bunch of red roses exploding from a painted gun.
The brightly coloured imagery can also be found in the print activity that supports the TV and viral executions.

Brief: Position Hahn Super Dry as the benchmark of good taste
Creative agency: BMF
Writer: Steven Thomson
Art director: Paul Bruce
Planner: Christina Aventi
Production company: O Positive NY
Director: David Shane
Editor: Stewart Reeves, Guillotine
BMF has created a TV campaign for Hahn Super Dry that aims to position the beer as the benchmark of good taste. The campaign is based on the thought that most of us make errors of judgment when it comes to the matter of taste and features a man experiencing one such lapse.
He is seen sharing lunch with his girlfriend and her family and trying valiantly to impress. Unfortunately, his efforts prove in vain when he receives a phone call and the ringtone sings out: "I'm a titty arse man."
Scandalised, the mother leaps up, thrusts a Hahn beer towards him and shouts: "In the spirit of good taste, turn that damn thing off."

Russianness - Russian folklore
Creative agency: Rodnaya Rech, Leo Burnett Group Russia

Art director: Dmitry Legotin

Slavyanskaya, the Gross-owned Russian vodka brand, is promoting its quintessentially Russian roots with a new print and online campaign.

Damir Muratov, a Siberian artist famous for having given lubok a modern and ironic twist, produced each execution, which depict scenes from Russian poetry, folk tales and songs.
