Bad guys get banished in this FiLGOOD campaign

As if the giant whale tail wasn't enough, a Korea brand launch campaign by BBH China features an overly literal barber and an attempt to coin a new phrase: ‘Gap boon good (갑분굿)’.

For the Korea market, BBH China has created a launch campaign for FiLGOOD, a brand of happoshu (low-malt beer) from Oriental Brewery. The work, across TV, print, digital videos and point-of-sale, advises the young adults the brand aims to reach: 'Don’t Worry, FiLGOOD'.

The campaign also offers up a new term, ‘Gap boon good (갑분굿)’, which BBH translates as ‘suddenly the atmosphere feels good’. The agency also notes it is a "wordplay on a trendy Korean neologism".

Ad Nut chuckled at the overly literal hairstylist in the spot above, and of course you can never go wrong with a giant yellow whale tail that sends annoyances flying out of the picture.
