Creative Execution
A group of stranded island passengers has just found something that could drastically improve their situation. The "Stranded" television concept delivered on the brand insight - escalating a fun time together - and worked to introduce the new brand tagline, "Here We Go."

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Deliver on the Bud Light Brand promise: Bud Light is the universal sign of a good time. When you have Bud Light everyone gets in on the good time. The target is 21-35 year old beer drinkers, who believe that Bud Light is a fun-loving brand. The unique insight: Research indicated consumers believed having Bud Light on hand meant things were going to be more fun, and not typical. Delivering on Bud Light's unique sense of fun was crucial to client and target.
