Glossy again partnered with Rethink on their second Molson Beer project, this time with Untitled Films. This spot chronicles the journey of three real friends, two of them surprising the other one (who’s a rabid hockey fan) currently living 10,000 miles away in the Gili Islands in Indonesia where there are no motorized vehicles whatsoever. The friends come armed with precious cargo: a satellite system for the Olympic Games, and of course a red fridge stocked full of Molson Canadian.

Glossy worked with Lowe Roche and TFO on the Living Opera Piano - a 12-note, giant keyboard that you play with your feet, featuring opera singers who elegantly belt out their corresponding notes as the different keys are played. The singers were connected to the notes via vibrating bracelets, so every time someone stepped on their note they would get “shocked” into singing.
Here’s some of the traction on the project – Marketing, Creativity, FastCompany’s Co.Create, PSFK, Campaign Brief, Daily Dot, AdRants, Toronto Egotist, Stimulant, CBS News, Media Post, AdLand, What’s Trending.
