Established brands need to tackle the changes, ride the trends, become the “cool uncle”. Or not.
Maybe all they should do is to act out their prestige with a dash of fresh self-sarcasm and a campaign line that becomes viral in real life, to overturn a long and steady drop of sales just in one year. The two-year “Poia Amstel” campaign managed a lot: to bring to life two beloved anti- heroes; to twist around the established status for the AMSTEL brand; to connect with the younger audience we aimed for; to win a lot of creative awards; to increase sales. And that’s the way we liked it.
