Contender: 'I’m Drinking It For You'
Agency: Colenso BBDO, New Zealand

Laura Liang, Chief Strategy Officer of DDB China Group:

I think it is quite a cheeky, fun and entertaining way to promote a beer product, by using a song. It creates an almost natural and light-hearted phenomenon online of people singing and memeing the performance, and it all felt hilarious and accessible, perfect for the category. And choosing Valentine’s Day is another smart move.
