Coles TV Ad

Fosters Australia

Carlton Draught

Flashbeer' was a departure from the epic, special-effects laden style of “Big Ad”. The ‘re-creation’ just got a bit twisted when Jennifer Beales (the star of Flashdance) was replaced by an average Aussie bloke in a leotard trying to dance with equal conviction.

To coincide with the humorous TVC, a Free 'Flashbeer' CD including the theme song from the movie ‘Flashdance’ - was used as a gift with Purchase.

The National promotion complimented the 'Flashbeer' TVC campaign And was supported by dynamic in-store POS displays with Flash sales & branding results.
