When Under Armour signed Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen for an advertising contract, she received quite a bit of criticism over social channels.

In the latest from Droga5′s “I Will What I Want” campaign, quotes from these social media critics are shown in the background (along with some support) as Bündchen tunes it all out and proceeds to kick and punch a heavy bag. She looks more like an athlete than a model in the spot, proving she has abilities beyond the runway. Her kung fu and yoga moves are also on display at http://gisele.underarmour.com/ — set to the backdrop of more real social media comments. While Gisele may have seemed like an odd choice for Under Armour, the collaboration works, even if it lacks the same narrative power as the campaign’s previous spot with Misty Copeland.

“We wanted to show a new side of Gisele—the unguarded, raw, real and brave side that shows what its like living in the public eye,” Droga5 Creative Director John McKelvey explained to Adweek. “To the world, most people have only seen her in a context of beauty and polish. But when we came to Gisele with the idea, she embraced the truth of the concept and its potential to be a positive message.” Read more

Caviar LogoCaviar Content has just announced the signing of beauty and lifestyle director Charles Mehling for worldwide representation.

Mehling made his commercial debut with a campaign for Earl Jeans featuring supermodel Gisele Bündchen, with whom he has become a regular collaborator, including a recent Pantene campaign. In addition to Bündchen, Mehling’s enviable celebrity and supermodel portfolio includes work with Kate Moss, Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Aniston, Naomi Watts, Natalia Vodianova, Karen Elson, Angela Lindvall and Georgia May Jagger. He’s worked with brands including Rimmel, Dove, BCBG, Budweiser, David Yurman, Garnier, Olay, Pantene and Smart Water.

Mehling launched his directorial career with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s debut music video, going on to work with artists including The Kooks, Emeli Sandé, The Script, Stereophonics, Kasabian and James Morrison. He also directed several music documentaries, most notably an in-depth biography of the Scottish singer/songwriter Paolo Nutini, as well as a short film entitled “For The First Time.”

“We are very excited by the signing of Charles to our roster! His work demonstrates a fantastic blend of beauty and fashion with strong natural performances,” said Sorcha Shepherd, EP at Caviar London. “He has a deep understanding of how to capture subtle human nuances that can really elevate a beauty & lifestyle piece into something truly engaging. The fact that he is also such an accomplished photographer makes him an even stronger contender in the world of advertising, where more and more brands are looking to find a solution for both stills and film in one great package.”

Digitas Founder’s Teenage Son Makes Candy, Garners Nods from Jason Bourne & Tom Brady

Well, this is news to us but a friend tipped us about this little startup from one Nicky Bronner, who is the son of Michael Bronner, the founder and former CEO of a little company you know called Digitas. Young Nicky (yep, he’s 13) already has fans and investors in the likes of Matt Damon, a co-launcher of Chipotle, Tom Brady and wifey Gisele Bundchen. According to a profile posted a few weeks back, the lad got the idea to start Unreal to eliminate the junk from junk food and enjoy the Halloween candies that even parents would approve. Shit, all we did on Halloween at 13 was avoid getting egged while wearing a knock-off Freddy Krueger costume. The video above, featuring Damon, Brady, Gisele, Unreal chef Adam Melonas and others, should help explain things.
