Schweppes wanted to get people open to the idea of cheating on their favourite soft drink with the new Schweppes Elixir: The dark mixer. The idea was to create the first official 'Celebrity Cheat Pass' Facebook App. A binding, legal agreement that allows you to cheat on your favourite and encourage all your Facebook friends to join in.

Whybin\TBWA Sydney
NRMA Insurance (NSW/ACT) highlighted that NRMA Insurance automatically covers the car extras that other insurers might not. It's the parts of your car you love the most, like air conditioning, leather seats, alloy wheels, power steering and even ABS brakes, that may not be automatically covered by other insurers. To them, these could be optional extras, which they won't cover unless you nominate them. In fact, there are so many extras that other insurers don't automatically cover, they've decided to try to create a car using them. The agency partnered with Will O'Rourke and The Glue Society to undertake the ambitious task of creating a complete working 'concept' car out of an array of extras from all different car makes and models. This journey was closely documented over six weeks and available to follow through online content.

The Hallway, Sydney

Idea: Mizone Zonelab.  Experiments in music to put you in the zone. How it worked: Music, it is said, has the power to take us to a different state of consciousness - a place where physical effort feels easier, you perform better and enjoy it more; a place they call the zone. Mizone put this theory to the test, establishing the ZoneLab to identify the best music to put athletes in the 'zone'. The agency commissioned a Professor of Motivational Psychology, four composers and four regular athletes. Together they created four ZoneLab tested music tracks. Then they gave the music away with every bottle of Mizone that we sold, as a gift-with-purchase to drive more sales.
