2019 Cannes contenders: 'Face Off' by GreyNJ United

The followup to the multiple-award-winning 'Friendshit' is just as awkwardly weird. Will it be just as successful?

2019 Cannes contenders: 'Face Off' by GreyNJ United
We asked creative leaders from across the region choose the work they expect (or hope) to see winning at Cannes Lions this year. See all this year's Cannes contenders.

Contender: Face Off
Agency: GreyNJ United
Client: Kasikornbank 

Nominated by:

Doug Schiff, CCO, Ogilvy Japan 

From the agency and client that brought us last year's brilliant 'Friendshit' comes 'Face Off'. No less quirky, with a message about a bank helping you handle change—I think. Watch and you'll say to yourself, 'what the...' till the end, while being properly entertained the entire way. 

Joakim Borgström, CCO, BBH Singapore: 

Friendshit updated. Still brilliant and Thai. Still fern and fun. Still awkward and awesome.
