Coca-Cola Europe with the help of Publicis Mojo, Sydney finally look like they have a shot at toppling Red Bull from the top throne of the European market. Forget "dance all night" type ads aimed at the techno-crowd, and say hello to short films featuring kids doing crazy things as they burn energy, and in this one literally burn.
A portfolio of three short films, ‘Ride’ (dir Garth Davis), ‘Playground’ (dir Glendyn Ivin) and ‘Peepshow’ (dir Jonathan Hill), kick off the integrated programme. The films will be activated online with strategic seeding in over 65 community channels and will feature in Burn-branded social media spaces and an online hub. The series tells the stories of real-life characters from the skate, music, and snowboarding communities. ‘Playground’ and ‘Peepshow’ are pure lyrical documentary, shot in urban Philadelphia and Quebec City respectively. The Garth Davis-directed ‘Ride’, shot in Mexico City, is a piece whose gritty reality is heightened by flaming trails that the skaters leave in their wake, a metaphor for their fierce creative expression.
