La Comunidad, Justin Timberlake Launch Sauza 901 Tequila

To launch his new premium tequila, Sauza 901, Justin Timberlake teamed up with Miami-based agency La Comunidad and production company Strange Beast to create an online spot entitled “The Journey of Don Sauza.”

La Comunidad came to production company Strange Beast with the challenge of encapsulating the combination of Timberlake’s new premium tequila with brand founder Don Cenobio Sauza‘s tradition; the overarching theme being “Premium Remastered.” To accomplish this, director Piccadilly Curtains employed in-camera projections to surround Timberlake in Sauza’s world. Curtains led a team of over 40 animators to who worked around the clock to bring the projections to life. The final product captured almost everything in-camera.

“I wanted to create a single, installation-type space which was a real-world representation of an ‘exploded’ diary or book, with large screens representing the cover and an array of smaller page-like projection surfaces where Justin could literally become immersed in the knowledge and words contained within,” explains Curtains. He adds that “Justin was instrumental in pulling this whole thing together on the day. He was a real joy to work with. Finding the right path both he and the camera should take around this world and hitting that balance between beautiful abstractions created by the projections and keeping the coherence of such a strong narrative script made for an exciting day.” Stick around for credits after the jump.

VB&P, Healthy Choice Say Screw Your Diet

“For years I thought I hated children’s laughter. I had no idea, I was just hungry.” In VB&P’s first work for Healthy Choice since winning the business for the ConAgra brand back in May, one woman recounts her days with hardcore dieting gang the “No-Carb Queens.” They destroy chicken wings and break baguettes in the super market. In a second spot, a man laments his time with a juice fast cult. “Bruce likes solids too,” he reassures himself.

The “online manifesto” video in this series (below) collages together every piece of diet advice you’ve ever been given. Healthy Choice’s point? “Don’t diet. Live healthy.”

Thank you, VB&P, for not going the infomercial route and instead making fun of saccharine, overly dramatic diet ads. I still wish you’d excluded close-ups of (undoubtedly disgusting) microwave-melted parmesan, but can forgive those because of the solid concept and funny writing. Healthy Choice is still a kind of diet, but these videos make it seem like a cool sarcastic best friend food, not the annoying nagging one who invites herself over and drinks all your wine (that’s South Beach).
