Brief Explanation
VAT 69 is one of India's oldest and most iconic whiskey brands. When it comes to alcohol advertising, the trend in India is to create surrogates, as any direct reference to alcohol is banned. To propagate VAT 69's new younger image, we went against the grain and created a gaming site that encouraged visitors to "do the man thing". And to popularise the site, we created a series of quirky viral films featuring an all-knowing, all-seeing VAT Man. The site was supported by films for cinema, web press ads and posters in bars and pubs.
