Strongbow Season in Urban Orchard

Strongbow the Fosters cider from Australia, features in an arty television commercial featuring a pastiche of electronic music, old fashioned orchard culture, and urban pranks. The creative team at Clemenger BBDO Melbourne sought to capture the sense of an urban orchard, bringing the apple cider season into the city.
