ADK Taiwan creates retro love story for 3M water purifier

TAIWAN - ADK Taiwan has created a 25-second TVC and three-minute online video titled '在水一方' (Purest Love), which adopts the style of a 1970s Taiwanese romantic film to raise awareness of 3M's Filitrete water purifier.

Richard Yu, chief creative officer of the agency, told Campaign Asia-Pacific, that many families in Taiwan worry about the cleanliness of water, yet awareness of 3M's purifiers is low. This is the brand's first TV ad campaign to raise awareness in the category.

The TVC and online video uses the format of popular '70s Taiwanese films, many of which adapted the work of popular novelist 瓊瑤 (Qiong Yao).

The TVC and video feature a pair of lovers who are about to part, as the man is getting ready to go to abroad. When he tries to soothe his girlfriend by passing her a glass of water, she becomes even more upset, worried about whether the water is clean. The boyfriend saves the day by revealing his prior purchase of a 3M water purifier—as well as a portable one he is taking with him.
