Carlsberg’s Rosh Hashanah Record Breaking Post by BBR Saatchi & Saatchi

As you know New Year (Rosh Hashana in Israel) is a hectic time on social media feeds. Greetings and wishes abound and if you’ve got a Facebook account, chances are you’ll be checking in more than usual to see exactly who sent you wishes, sent your friends wishes and no less important didn’t send you wishes at all. But Carlsberg doesn’t compromise on the type of wishes it sends.

So when Facebook announced a couple of weeks back it was implementing its live photo technology, we immediately understood that together with the vertical screen, we held at our fingertips the power to implement a new type of storytelling through the mobile feed by combining a short movie with live interaction.

Carlsberg created ‘The Best Way to Open the New Year’ – an interactive ‘Live Photo’ based post that asks social media aficionados to ‘Press Here and not Let Go’. Those who did, (live photo tech only works on mobile) were delighted to see they’d just set in motion a rube machine that ultimately delivers Carlsberg’s suggestion to open a great new year with a nice pint.

Surfers loved our playful interactive experienced and engaged with our innocuous little post like never before. Engagement rate reached 13% – an all-time high for the brand whose record stood until then unbeaten at 9% J

BBR Saatchi & Saatchi & Carlsberg Proudly Present: A Watch Pack Fit For A King

There is nothing like getting nice and cozy to watch your favorite TV series. This is true tenfold when it’s the season’s last episode. Whether you like watching the episode alone or with friends it is definite cause for celebration and some extra special nosh. But in some countries being a loyal fan of a TV series may mean getting up in the early morning hours just to make sure you catch the finale in real time (leaving no room for the classic spoiler Joes of the world).

That’s why ahead of the ‘Game of Thrones’ grand season finale, Carlsberg decided to spoil the series’ most uncompromising fans with awesome watch packs delivered straight to their door.

It pays off to be uncompromising!

A launch campaign for Super-Pharm’s second ‘Beauty Vlogger Academy’ by BBR Saatchi & Saatchi

Super-Pharm, the leading beauty cosmetics retailer in Israel launched its second “Beauty Vlogger Academy”. An academy which will form, shape and instruct Israel’s next generation of beauty vloggers.

Unlike in other parts of the world, where there are many YouTubers women can turn to for advice on how to create the latest look, in Israel there are but a handful of beauty YouTubers. That’s why Super-Pharm decided to fill in the gap and launch a search for Israel’s next big “Beauter”.

The commercial we created for the launch of the search, was inspired by the shape of the YouTube video frame and took several months of planning. The reason is that most of the action revolves around seven different frames which were hand crafted out of paper and cardboard. To complicate things further, we added to each frame elements such as cogs, folding concertinas, led lights and more which made the production challenging as they had to be hand operated on the set and the actress had to react to them on cue.

But hey, who wouldn’t go the extra mile for aesthetics right!?
