The Inheritance

Agencies: VML UK VML Germany


Appliances so durable, they might just outlive their owners. This is the message behind "The Beko Inheritance", a new campaign by Beko, one of the top 3 large home appliance brands in Europe, setting out to redefine industry standards in the category.

At its heart is a captivating, branded film produced by VML Germany & UK in collaboration with acclaimed OB42 director Jack Howard. Renowned for his work on numerous short films and television series, Howard brings a fresh perspective to storytelling, infusing the campaign with a perfect balance of seriousness and comedic flair.

The film transports viewers into a classic murder mystery scenario, featuring brilliant performances by an ensemble cast including Brendan Patricks (Downton Abbey), Ross Hatt (The Gentlemen), and Marty Cruckshank (The Crown). As tensions rise during a family dispute over a presumed family heirloom, the unexpected reveal at the will reading leaves audiences both surprised and amused.

In a final ingenious twist, the coveted family heirloom is unveiled to be none other than a Beko fridge, symbolizing the enduring quality and longevity of Beko appliances.

This professional campaign titled 'The Inheritance' was published in Germany, Spain, and United Kingdom in April, 2024. It was created for the brand: Beko, by ad agencies: VML Germany and VML UK. This Film medium campaign is related to the Household Products industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted 2 months ago by Associate Director, Communications: Billi Hatfield of VML.
