AUSTRALIA - A colourful cast of corporate characters introduces a new fizzy product line for Schweppes' Cool Ridge water in the second episode of an entertaining campaign by BMF Melbourne.

Client: Cool Ridge water, Schweppes Australia

Agency: BMF Melbourne

Market: Australia

Campaign scope: TV, outdoor, POS, social media

Press release quote: "Cool Ridge is all about bringing a bit of fun into the water category, and not taking ourself too seriously," said Bo Jakubenko, brand manager for Cool Ridge at Schweppes Australia.

Comments: We like the recognisable species of office inhabitants, especially the sleepy koala that is clearly the star of the show. The quietly muttered one-liners throughout the ad resemble real business meetings and reward close listeners. The group's Facebook page also offers more office hijinx.

Previously: In the campaign's first TVC, the Cool Ridge brain trust crafted the brand's slogan in 30 seconds flat.
