To prepare the ground for a major Celsiy vodka advertising campaign, I crafted a special teaser TV spot. In this video, the mysterious women voice in extraterrestrial language told a strange story.

For all, who isn’t non-Alpha Centaur person, the story has translated subtitles. Here is this story: “There are many worlds in the Universe. And each of us chooses his own. Which will you choose?

After two weeks of teaser broadcasting, it was glued to the original TV commercial into one video spot and went to the air as a central part of the advertising campaign.

The big ugly text at the bottom of the video is a health warning. By local advertising laws, health warning always occupies a specific area of any alcohol or tobacco layout and must be contrasted enough. You can’t deal with it.

Major TV commercials


We launched the national advertising campaign in three steps:

Step one: Two weeks before the official campaign start date, we started broadcasting a teaser video.

Step two: The teaser plus a TV commercial, glued in on video spot, with an additional outdoor advertising campaign. The outdoor campaign had entirely different visuals but kept the primary “the mysterious Celsiy worlds ” communication line.

Step three: Original TV commercial only, outdoor and BTL actions in the most popular nightclubs in cities with over a million residents. For BTL actions I created the third set of visuals, based on the main customers’ activities pattern.


“Celsiy” TV commercials were “out of the TV clutter” and entirely different than any other broadcasted vodka TV commercials, which usually look like close-up tabletop videos, featuring slow-motion slicing of herring and pickles or jokes about three friends on a hunting trip.

It was a perfect product launch: the brand got colossal target audience attention and garnered a share in the national vodka market.
