Hydration Machine, Amplify

Agency: VML


One of the biggest dangers for athletes is dehydration. But athletes don’t always pay attention to it. They often fail to listen and retain information on nutrition, even though it’s crucial to their performance. Gatorade wanted to illustrate hydration in a new way that’s both engaging and memorable. The human body is often compared to a machine, so Gatorade brought that metaphor to life. Using CGI, an original kinetic machine was designed to illustrate the science of the body’s hydration – and lack thereof – in a simple, dynamic way.

This professional campaign titled 'Hydration Machine, Amplify' was published in United States in July, 2016. It was created for the brand: Gatorade, by ad agency: VML. This Digital medium campaign is related to the Non-Alcoholic Drinks industry and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted almost 5 years ago.
