To promote VW's Fatigue Sensor, we used Brazil's most popular sport: soccer. Whenever a player was worn-out and ready to rest, the fatigue sensor icon would appear over the player, indicating that he was too tired to continue playing. In addition, as the icon followed a player across the field, the live TV game commentator would call out that the player was tired and ready to be benched. This stunt aired in Brazil during the British FA Cup and Italian Serie A League games.

In Brazil, it's illegal to show people drinking beer in television commercials. We used the law in our favor to create a fun, unique brand relaunch campaign for Antartica beer that left consumers thirsty for more.
YouTube Skip Ad
The main character from our campaign urged viewers to skip the pre-roll ad as fast as possible, because he couldn't drink a beer until someone skipped it and he was out of sight.
Terminix is all about relentlessly protecting homes and preventing pests from getting in. We created an action hero to support that position. Like James Bond chases arms dealers, our guy chases termites and roaches. These two spots just launched the new brand.
Traders get bad trading advice from everyone, everywhere. Especially from shady home vloggers on the Internet. So we created pre-roll ads where you see sketchy home traders giving viewers bad advice. A ‘skip advice’ button appears in lieu of the ‘skip ad’ button. Once a viewer clicks the button, our TD Ameritrade guy appears and sets viewers straight.

Casa do Zezinho is a NGO located in Capão redondo, one of São Paulo's poorest neighborhoods. It helps more than 5.000 children have access to education. A year before the Soccer World Cup we developed this project with São Paulo's biggest soccer team and used their jerseys to get people's attention to education. Player numbers on the back of the jerseys were switched for mathematic equations that equaled their original numbers. The players used them during one of the biggest football derby's in Brazil: São Paulo x Corinthians. At the end of the game all jerseys where auctioned on the Internet and all the money donated to Casa do Zezinho.

At the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, over 1 million visitors from 202 countries came to experience the games. But the problem was, they weren't necessarily feeling welcome by the locals who spent weeks prior to the games protesting the event's funding. So as one of the World Cup's biggest sponsors, Visa used it's brand positioning to let visitors know that 'everyone is welcome.'

Billboard magazine was in need of a new on hold music and briefed us to develop something fresh, showing the magazine’s concept of music and entertainment. What came out was an engaging way of letting people who wait on hold play their favorite rock riffs, by pressing the telephone buttons.

This campaign was created to save the Abrolhos Islands in Bahia: one of the last places where the humpback whale still mates in the world. The place is threatened by a bill the Brazilian Congress wants to approve that will allow the drilling of oil in the region.
Snickers was launching its brand in Brazil for the first time, primarily targeting hungry college students. So as part of the launch, we developed a photo booth that adopted the legendary concept of 'you're not you when you're hungry.' The machine was put on the campus of one of São Paulo's biggest universities. When students took their photos, pics of the iconic Brazilian comedic actress Betty Faria came out. (Faria is the equivalent of America's Betty White.)
