Andhra Pradesh and Orissa first to get a burst of energy this summer
‘Share Energy’, the new campaign by Coca-Cola India’s enhanced hydration beverage- Aquarius Glucocharge, offers a fresh insight into how human beings are gifted with the power to re-energize and support one another. The campaign has been conceptualized by Taproot Dentsu Gurgaon, the creative agency from the house of Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN) India, and beautifully showcases the spirit of acting as a collective and emerging stronger together.
The campaign has been launched in the heartland of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa and comprises film, print, and Out of Home (OOH). The light-on-the-pocket pricing of ₹10 across variants, has made it an affordable enhanced hydration beverage, perfectly suited for everyone working hard, outdoors or indoors.
Speaking about the new campaign, Anoop Manohar, Director- Emerging Categories, Coca-Cola India, said, “Aquarius Glucocharge is an innovative offering from Coca-Cola India, packed with glucose, essential minerals like potassium, sodium and calcium, and fruit juice. It is loved by consumers for its benefits of ‘Rehydrate, Replenish and Recharge’ at an affordable price. Our aim with this campaign is to help consumers understand the value of a collective and realize that we are all gifted with the power to re-energize and support one another in order to emerge as stronger individuals. It is through empathy and kindness and actively supporting each other that we emerge as stronger individuals – together.”
Titus Upputuru, Creative Head, Taproot Dentsu said, “In an age, where we are constantly occupied with recharging the dying batteries of our phones, this film is a reminder that the battery of our bodies needs recharging too. And it is wonderful that we don’t have to look too far to recharge ourselves – we are all gifted with the power to recharge and reenergize ourselves. Just like Aquarius Glucocharge which gives us instant recharge.”
Anand Murty, Strategy Head, Taproot Dentsu said, “Rather than fall prey to stereotypical narratives of heroic action, the opportunity for Aquarius came from the consumers themselves – in the way they recognized their role in supporting one another, lending a hand in times of need, boosting one another and making sure no one needed to walk alone. It was this counter-narrative that helped us situate Aquarius as a brand that cares, supports and re-energizes – so we move forward. Together.”

Ranked #1: Campaign: It's a Tide Ad | Creative Agency: FP7 McCann Dubai | Media Agency: Hearts & Science New York| Digital/Specialist Agency: MKTG New York | Network: McCann Worldgroup | Holding company: WPP | Brand: McDonald's | Advertiser: Unilever | Country: USA
The WARC Effective 100, an annual ranking of the world's most awarded campaigns and companies for marketing effectiveness, is now published. Providing an independent benchmark for excellence in effectiveness, it is the last of the three WARC Rankings to be released, following the recently announced Creative 100 and Media 100.
The Effective 100 Ranking is compiled by WARC, the international marketing information company, and is produced by combining the results of the industry's most important global and regional award shows for effectiveness throughout 2019. The awards tracked are determined by the WARC Rankings Advisory Board and a worldwide industry survey.
The most effective campaign of 2019 is It's A Tide Ad, by Saatchi & Saatchi New York / Hearts & Science New York / MKTG New York for laundry detergent brand Tide. Tide became the most loved brand of the Super Bowl and grew consumer loyalty in the US by hijacking other popular ads with the message that if there are clean clothes, it's got to be a Tide ad. Within two weeks, sales of Tide products increased by 35% and within a year, sales increased to over $75m.
Andrea Diquez - Chief Executive Officer, Saatchi & Saatchi New York, comments: "We're so incredibly proud that TideAd has ranked #1 for effectiveness. I can only attribute our success to an extraordinary partnership with a very brave client, an amazing and highly diverse agency team and a group of partners that helped us push boundaries and make this idea even bigger than we could have ever imagined.
"TideAd embodies everything we strive to achieve as an agency. It changed the way other brands behave in the Super Bowl, blurred the boundaries between media, entertainment and marketing and engaged the audience in a compelling and unprecedented way. In the end, this is just more great proof that powerful ideas drive business results."
In second place is Oyster Kanji Dictation for Hiroshima Tourism by I&S BBDO Tokyo / BBDO J West Hiroshima. The campaign increased oyster consumption by launching a workbook that educated citizens about the food. In third is National Safety Council's Prescribed to Death, a campaign by Energy BBDO Chicago / PHD Chicago to raise awareness of prescription opioid overdose in the US.
There are three agency rankings in the Effective 100: creative, media and digital/specialist. Ranked #1 creative agency is FP7 McCann Dubai, which climbed 13 places to first place after working on six of the top 100 campaigns. AMV BBDO London is up from 11th place last year to second. CHE Proximity climbs from 9th to third.
Last year's 21st placed media agency, Hearts & Science New York, leaped up to the top spot this year through work with Procter & Gamble and AT&T, also contributing to the #1 campaign, It's A Tide Ad. Two new entrants to the top 50 since last year take second and third place: Mindshare Mumbai and PHD Chicago.
In top position of the digital/specialist agency ranking is Dentsu Aegis Network's MKTG New York, having worked on top placed campaign, It's A Tide Ad. MRM/McCann Shanghai takes second place and Ayzenberg Los Angeles third. All three agencies are in the rankings for the first time.
McCann Worldgroup holds its position at the top of the networks ranking for effectiveness for a second year in a row, significantly ahead on points of BBDO Worldwide in second place. Ogilvy is in third.
Suzanne Powers, Global Chief Strategy Officer, McCann Worldgroup, said: "Our mission of helping brands earn a meaningful role in people's lives is not just mantra to us. It's a methodology and approach that helps our teams around the world create amazingly impactful work. This top ranking recognizes that focus, and, of course, the great clients with whom we have the honor of working with every day to drive those results."
The top nine places in the holding companies ranking remain unchanged from last year,with WPP remaining at the top for a second year. Omnicom Group follows in second place and Interpublic Group is in third.
Regularly top of the table, last year's top two brands for effectiveness switched places with McDonald's coming out on top, ahead of Coca-Cola. IKEA is in third. Despite McDonald's having one campaign in the top 100 - The McDelivery Pin - a further 30 other campaigns from around the world earned points for the fast food retailer.
Colin Mitchell - Senior Vice President, Global Marketing, McDonald's, says: "We're honored to be recognized for the effectiveness of our marketing in this prestigious ranking. Effectiveness is what we strive for day in and day out. In an industry often fixated by the short-term, this gives a sense of the long-term value of what our marketers do."
For a third consecutive year, Unilever is the top advertiser in the Effective 100 Rankings by a significant margin over The Coca-Cola Company in 2nd place. Unilever's Lifebuoy is ranked 11th in the brands' table and a further 32 brands collected points contributing to its first place ranking.
USA retains the top spot in the country table, but for the first time since the Effective 100 ranking began in 2014, the UK has dropped from second into third place, with India moving up to take its place. The UAE is the biggest mover in the top 10, rising from 29th last year to 5th this year. 71 different countries registered points.
