V Energy Invites New Zealanders to Become Robbers Online

Australian-Zelanian drinks distributor and manufacturer Frucor Beverages has launched an interactive 8-week promotion for its V Energy drink, providing New Zealanders with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become a ‘robber’ in a virtual space and steal their share of the $100,000 prize. The campaign, developed by BBDO NZ, encourages the country residents to steal the money from each other on the online destination launched at www.vrobbers.co.nz for a chance to receive their share in real cash after the competition ends.

Pic. A snapshot from the www.vrobbers.co.nz page (click to enlarge)

You have until midnight, Sunday 31st March to become a robber and steal as much if the $100K as possible as you can from other robbers. But remember, there will be plenty of greedy robbers trying to steal your cash,” says the website’s loading page. The brand also asks the participants of the promotion to “obey all laws” in the real world, “or the police may be knocking on your door sometime soon.” While registering as a robber, one is invited to choose a mask and a name (they also can take a photo using their webcamera).

Players can take a look at the map, where the biggest shares are marked green, see the list of the most wanted robbers and start the game. By entering unique codes from the promotional V Energy packaging, players can “protect” their cash for limited time or “steal” other robbers’ stashes. So far, the biggest steal is $1,345 and the amount of unprotected cash is $17,448.

We’re bound to ruffle a few feathers for promoting stealing, but let’s be honest, the idea of stealing your share of a cash prize is way more interesting than winning it. We wanted to challenge the traditional WIN WIN WIN promo mechanic,” shared Aaron Turk, digital creative director, Colenso BBDO.


V Energy has launched 2 Limited Edition Products.

Advertising Spotlight: Coke´s Anti-Obesity Ad

For the first time ever, a big soda company is launching a campaign to combat obesity. The Coca-Cola Co., fighting back on how the sweet calories in sugary sodas have become a health policy and obesity bogeyman lately, kicks off its initiative with a new epic two-minute ad called "Coming Together." It's live online and begins airing tonight on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC. The spots underline how getting fat comes from consuming excessive calories from any number of sources, and that sodas aren't the only source of weight-increasing calories.

The ad is a montage of video clips like children exercising, scientists testing plants, and a rapid-fire series of a multiethnic smiling faces. While these images play, a female voiceover intones: "Beating obesity will take action by all of us, based on one simple common sense fact: All calories count. No matter where they come from. Including Coca-Cola and everything else with calories. And if you eat and drink more calories than you burn off, you'll gain weight."

Coca-Cola Co. spokesperson Diana Garza Ciarlante told TODAY the campaign's "purpose is to highlight some of the specifics behind the company’s ongoing commitment to deliver a greater choice of beverages, including low and no-calories options, and to clearly communicate the calorie content of all its products."

"We call it 'Coming Together' because it informs Americans about all the company has been doing to bring folks together and deliver more choice and calorie transparency," Coca-Cola Co. spokesperson Ben Sheidler told TODAY. "In it we acknowledge that obesity is the issue of this generation and that we want to step into the national discourse to help identify ways to address the problem with willing partners."

Coca-Cola wasn't able to provide details yet about what other forms the campaign will take. "What I can tell you is that we've never been more committed to doing our part to help address the issue of obesity, and 2013 is going to be a landmark year in terms of expanding partnerships and efforts to educate consumers about energy balance," said Sheidler.

Gillette is celebrating men’s pride, moustache or Mo’s, by launching a new activation dedicated to male’s facial hair.

Since November is traditionally a month of growing moustache, in the US Gillette embarks on a tour across three cities, York City, Chicago and Houston, to support men who pledged to grow profound mo’s by providing them with some tuning and styling services. One of Gillette’s three “Masters of Style,” André 3000 Benjamin, will help kick the tour. The best Mo’s selected during the eMO’gency Styler Tour will get featured on a huge billboard, which will appear in early December at Times Square in NYC.

The brand has also teamed up with ZERO partners, a health-care national nonprofit organization working to support prostate cancer elimination, to launched a new campaign Capture your Mo’ to generate more money for the researches. The brand has released an app on its Facebook page, which enables users to launch daily snaps of their growing facial hair to see how their Mo’s grow over a month. For every photo of the mo’s uploaded from November 1 through November 30, the brand will donate $1 to ZERO to raise awareness of prostate cancer and end the disease (up to $50,000). The most shareable Mo’ Growth videos, selected by internal style judges, will be also shoed on the Times Square billboard. In late November, participants will post their final photos, asking the public if they should shave the Mo off or Style it—the brand will also donate one dollar for every photo submission and ensuing vote.

The Movember is supported by a range of brands including Sony, which launched an app celebrating moustaches in movies, HP, which launched its limited-edition moustache bottles, and Philips, which is providing tips and psychological support to men who decided to grow moustaches.

Natalie Portman Dior mascara ad banned in UK

Christian Dior received a lashing from UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) for exaggerating the effects if its mascara.

The ad for the the brand’s DiorShow New Look, which featured spokesmodel and actress Natalie Portman showing off long ,dark eyelashes, has been banned in the United Kingdom for misleading customers.

Beauty foe L’Oreal complained to the ASA, according to the ruling on the regulator's website.

Dior has denied that they enhanced Portman’s lashes -- sort of.

While they denied using false eyelashes to fluff her flutterers, they admitted to retouching the lashes in Photoshop to "separate/increase the length and curve of a number of her lashes and to replace/fill a number of missing or damaged lashes, for a more stylised, uniform and tidy effect.”

According to Dior, that’s just standard procedure.

"[We] did not consider that the post-production techniques went beyond the likely consumer expectations of what was achievable using the product," a spokesperson said.

The ASA wasn’t buying it.

"We considered that the ad's claims 'Lash-multiplying effect volume and care mascara', '... an unrivalled lash creator effect' and 'delivers spectacular volume-multiplying effect, lash by lash', particularly in conjunction with the image of Natalie Portman's eye lashes, would be understood to mean that the mascara could lengthen the lashes, as well as separate them, increase their thickness and volume, and generally enhance lash appearance,” a spokesperson said, regarding the ruling.

Dior had not received any complaints from customers regarding the ad.

The ASA has thrown the hammer at a number of beauty companies, banning ads for cosmetics, clothing and fragrances.

A clothing company called Drop Dead came under fire for showing a model who appeared "underweight and looked anorexic.”

Melanie Thierry’s dizzying turn in an ad for the YSL fragrance Opium was banned because it appeared to simulate druge use.

A CoverGirl mascara ad featuring model Nicole Fox was lambasted for stating that "lash inserts were applied to both of Nicole’s lashes to add lash count before applying mascara," -- in the fine print.
