Le Petit Parkour com @Guarana Antarctica


Sao Paulo, November 2011 - A new action created by DDB Brasil for Guarana Antarctica introduces the concept of "Being extreme is being with friends" on the brand's YouTube Channel . The film features a group of friends practicing "Le Petit Parkour", a new version of "Parkour", the French sport that uses elements of the city as obstacles. Railings, walls and trees give way to tires, guides and railroad tracks in this satire of the original sport. The major obstacle, a 3.3-liter bottle of Guarana Antarctica, appears to be too dangerous so athletes replace it with a "Petit" (smaller) version of the product, justifying the name of the game. The soundtrack is an attraction in itself. It combines the most popular phrases, expressions and words in the French language and turn them into a hilarious hip hop song. At the end, the group is chased by a police guard who fails to reach them because he can not face the obstacles on the way.

Film advertisment created by DDB, Brazil for Guarana Antarctica, within the category: Non-Alcoholic Drinks.

Reminds me of Ali G only not funny.

I don't mind the concept.

I'd prefer it without the supporting copy, possibly filmed like a real parkour video until the final line sums it up.

Funny as hell. Ok, a bit stupid, but it is good when brands have a sense of humor, isn't it? Lyrics are amazing, pay attention to it. The moonwalking made me LOL... Well done, life can be fun!

Loved it. The cop looks like he should have been a founding member.
