Geometry Global, Chivas Pay Tribute to the ‘Modern Gentleman’

Geometry Global, or the “recently merged entity of G2, OgilvyAction and JWTAction”, went all out to promote client Chivas 18/Hong Kong in this campaign specifically designed for distribution on Facebook.

You may note the complete lack of alcohol in this film. As the campaign itself notes, “Modern Gentlemen do not pursue material gains, but a legacy of changing the lives of others”. Understandable, then, that they don’t have the time or inclination to drink during the day.

The brand made a few cocktail suggestions for such gentlemen in the form of Facebook offers for drinks like “Lighten Up the Dark“, which sounds delicious if you like Cointreau.
