Ant Keogh, creative director of Clemenger BBDO Melbourne said: “Carlton Natural Blonde needs an introduction, but we didn’t want to hit the audience over the head with the low-carb message, it’s great tasting beer first and foremost”.

“Low-carb beer is where the market is moving, so in other words it’s literally ‘the future of beer’. But a Carlton beer couldn’t really say that with a straight face, so we took a tongue-in-cheek approach,” he said.

Filming was shot by director Christopher Riggert via, Sydney, with director of photography Danny Ruhlmann, producer Julianne Shelton.

Editor was Stewart Reeves at Guillotine. Post production was done at Animal Logic by Colin Renshaw. Music was produced by Karl Richter and Cornel Wilzeck at Level Two Music and Electric Dreams. Sound was designed by Paul Le Couteur at Flagstaff Studios.
