Zulu Alpha Kilo’s ‘Proof of Santa’ App Raises Money for Make-A-Wish Canada

If you’re looking for ways to “prove” to your young one that Santa is real, you should check out Zulu Alpha Kilo’s free “Kringl” app.

The app allows parents to create their own personal Christmas video scenes, which they can then share on YouTube, Facebook or Twitter. Users begin by selecting one of five Santa vignettes, then film a chosen location, and finally insert Santa, adjusting for lighting and size so that he fits seamlessly into the scene. They can then show their children Santa’s magical visit, dispelling any doubts the kids may feel about Saint Nick’s existence. The free app also collects donations for Make-A-Wish Canada, for those in the giving spirit. It’s a cute idea, and hopefully people will be pleased enough with the app that they’ll feel compelled to donate.

Check out the above video to see a preview of the app in action, along with a variety of adorable responses. Credits after the jump.  Read more

Live the Finer Life by Drinking Corona

Taco Bell wants you to live mas. Corona wants you to live mas fina. If the trend continues, we’re one year away from Walmart telling us to live mejor.

Corona’s Canadian rebranding comes from Toronto-based Zulu Alpha Kilo and its Quebec agency partner, TANK. Let’s tackle all the moving parts: an English campaign with a Spanglish slogan for a Mexican company created by a Canadian agency. If you ever needed proof of NAFTA, there you go.

The debut spot, which runs sixty seconds, clearly targets younger demographics of drinkers and asks them to live life without regret. Surf, protest deforestation, look at aurora borealis, etc. While you’re experiencing the etc., you should also drink Corona. It’s silly to associate Corona with “the finer life,” but the commercial is well done and effectively sentimental, according to the viewer response on Youtube. I’d have to agree, even if there are no beaches.
