Where did the idea come from?
The inspiration behind the campaign came from the Carling
Black Label cinema advertisement (Dambusters). The
bouncing bombs in this advert created a rippling effect from
wave to many.
That’s what we want to do with the campaign, to create and
promote an event that creates a viral sensation, rippling
through the social networks and media platforms.
The digital campaign slogan is “Bet he drinks Carling”, main idea
is to get people to join and refer this event. The event is based
on the idea of the ripple, where one friend tells another about

o Newsfeed - up and coming events
• A short promo trailer entitled “Bet he drinks Carling” will
be uploaded onto YouTube and the main website. This
creates an atmosphere for what is to come and the
message incorporated into the video with the brand.
o The video is not serious but sarcastically
• The event will feature some kind of promotion that
allows people to interact online (and offline through
smartphones?) and redeem that QR code or SMS
