  • McDonald's 

McDonald's and fútbol have something in common: they unite people. The World Cup campaign series is a story of people from all walks of life uniting over breakfast and the world cup at McDonald’s. (Yes, being a World Cup sponsor, the restaurants can broadcast the games at the discretion of the individual locations.)The bilingual TV spots consist of three executions in which hardcore and novice soccer fans come together to enjoy the 2018 FIFA World Cup every morning over McDonald’s breakfast. As the tournament progresses our novice fans learn more about The Beautiful Game and even some Spanish along the way. World Cup commercials are seen very frequently over a one month period, so we created a series of spots that told a bigger story as a whole and rewarded the viewer with fresh executions throughout the tournament.The campaign will air in both Telemundo and Fox Sports throughout the whole month of the World Cup (6/14-7/15), so far only the first of the three executions has aired. See them all here titled, “Opening Round”, “Quarterfinals”, “Finals”.

  • Chipotle

Fast food Mexican grill Chipotle has announced a series of changes for 2019, including a new tag line that will more reflect Chipotle as “a purpose-driven lifestyle brand,” Ad Age reports. According to Chipotle´s CMO Chris Brandt, the chain has in the past “been silent and lost some of its cultural relevance.” Brandt says the chain’s ultimate marketing mission is to make Chipotle a brand people want to know about. Chipotle is still trying to rebound from the E.Coli outbreaks at some of its stores. The brand is confident that that chain in the next few years can elevate its annual revenue from US$4.5 billion to US$10 billion once all the changes are instituted.In early 2017, Chipotle appointed Venables Bell & Partners for creative and MullenLowe Mediahub for its media business.
