Milo positions itself as a sports drink in Vietnam

The beverage brand seemingly takes a page from Nike in a campaign from Ogilvy Vietnam and Sweetshop director Noah Conopask.

Ad Nut is not sure about the idea of downing malted chocolate right after working out, but is willing to try after watching this well-made and compelling film from Ogilvy Vietnam for Nestlé's Milo. The spot also gets extra points, in Ad Nut's book, for inclusion: it includes not only a girl athlete taking on the boys but also an athlete with an artificial limb and a somewhat overweight kid. The copywriting is top-notch too.
