Agency Technology, Humans And Taste (THAT) and Honor Society directing duo Cary & Jon bare (and ‘bear’) all for The Finnish Long Drink in a series of spots ranging from the precious to the provocative and beyond.

In one of the seven spots, Top Gun: Maverick actor Miles Teller--also an investor in the company--makes fast friends with a bear deep in the Finland wilderness, bonding over their shared love of fishing, honey, dancing and, of course, a Long Drink. In others, couples learn the dangers of grabbing a “quick drink” in unknown locales like abandoned dive bars and packed fintech haunts, in lieu of enjoying themselves with a slower-paced and delightfully Finnish Long Drink.

The collection in total embraces brand whimsey and its Finnish origins, leaning into common country stereotypes and irreverent humor made commonplace in ads directed by award-winning directors Cary & Jon.

This professional campaign titled 'Bear Bestie' was published in Finland in August, 2022. It was created for the brand: The Long Drink, by ad agencies: Honor Society and Technology Humans and Taste (THaT). This Film medium campaign is related to the Alcoholic Drinks industry and contains 6 media assets. It was submitted over 1 year ago.
