Budweiser Goal-Synced Arena

Budweiser had to build relevance among hockey-loving beer-drinkers in a cut-throat, declining market and break through massive hockey sponsorship clutter, led by their #1 competitor. Our response? Don’t think like a sponsor, think like a fan! Through a powerful, live activation, we literally put goal-scoring into the hands of fans, helping them celebrate their teams. We created the ultimate fan experience by building Canada’s first goal-synced arena: a broadcast integration centred on activating thousands of goal-triggered Budweiser Red-Light glasses. This highly-effective approach drove impact and deepened their connection to Budweiser.

Coffee has low penetration in low-tier cities as residents don’t value its stimulating benefit. Research shows the young desires the need to express themselves without disturbing the social harmony that they are so dependent on for survival in low-tier China. Hence, we position coffee as the perfect ice breaker through an invitation of “Have a cup of coffee first” --a call-to-action that used celebrities, KOLs and the right platforms to reach and convince key target audiences to embrace coffee and feel its role, which helps uplift penetration and sales.

Durnev watches stories (how it all began)

To convey the essence of the brand, “Reveal your wild nature”, we decided to combine all the trends, formats, and activities that are currently popular among the brand's TA: bloggers, Versus battles, cosplay, video games and hate watching. In the center of communication, there was a promotional website styled like a fighting game, where we published the videos with our two heroes, wildDurnev and wildMurafa. For a month, users came up with challenges for them–of any degree of strangeness, complexity, and improbability. Every week, each hero got one task from the list made by the TA. The “Durnev watches stories” meme appeared during our project and instantly turned into a popular YouTube show.
