This latest work for the diet version of Dr Pepper evokes a touch of fairytale magic as Deutsch LA rounds up a host of mythical characters to discuss "believability".
Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny, among others, gather at an "I exist" meeting to relate their desire to be believed.
During the meeting, the newest member, Diet Dr Pepper Guy, laments that people don't believe his low-calorie soft drink is satisfying.
The other group members laugh at his plight, sarcastically wishing him luck in his quest to convert consumers to his beverage.

More than 1,000 women bare their breasts in this latest work by Grey Amsterdam, which aims to raise awareness of breast cancer on behalf of Pink Ribbon magazine.
Stills of breasts are shown in sequence to depict their journey through life, from immaturity, through puberty and pregnancy, to old age.
A voiceover reads a poem that describes how a woman's "two girlfriends" accompany her through all of life's experiences.
The women who took part, aged between 16 and 72, were invited to volunteer their services for the TV spot.
The ad is part of an integrated campaign, which includes print work shot by the UK photographer Rankin.

A mother gets more than she bargained for when she delivers her son to his college dorm room in JWT New York's spot for Cadbury's Hall Refresh mints.
As her son and husband leave to get more bags from the car, a room-mate offers her one of the mints. The two stare at each other while their thoughts focus on the juicy taste of the sweet.
The son and his father re-enter the room to find the pair locked in a state of unadulterated pleasure, much to their dismay.
AXE - DAY AND NIGHT - URUGUAY
Project: Day and night
Brief: Communicate that Axe should be used twice per day - morning and
Creative agency: Lowe
Writer: Jorge Gonzalez
Art director: Agustin Acosta
Planner: Victoria Martin
Media agency: Initiative Media
Exposure: Print, outdoor
To promote Axe as an antiperspirant that should be used twice a day, both day and night, Lowe's Uruguay office has created an innovative print and outdoor campaign.
The print ad uses an incomplete image of a woman, whose semi-naked torso has been blanked out by white squares. The accompanying copy encourages consumers to send a text after 9pm to complete the rest of the ad.
Once the text is received, a picture message is sent back revealing the woman in underwear.
Outdoor ads that reveal the bottom half of a woman's body after 9pm support the print activity.
