‘The Cliché’ for Heineken by Publicis Brasil
Heineken and Publicis in Brazil wanted to change a tired cliché around how football was a male sport in the country. They did this through an elaborate prank that involved giving a group of guys the chance to 'gift' their girlfriends a few days at a spa so they could attend the UEFA Champions League Final. The twist was that the men were tricked and it was actually their girlfriends who got to go to the game. The resulting video was Heineken’s most viewed film of all time and earned the agency behind it a Gold Lion.
