Smart Energy in Junk Ballet

Smart Energy, an energy drink produced by Spring Valley, is being promoted as the source of good energy with “Junk Ballet”, a commercial featuring a zoetrope made out of junk. The campaign is linked with an online interactive site, Makes Good Energy Totem.

Smart Zoetrope

Most energy drinks focus on negative behaviour – partying, extreme cliff jumping, etc. Junk Ballet is a piece of film that asks the question, ‘What you would you do, make, create if you actually put your energy towards something good?’ The zoetrope, built on the beach with pipes, books, little people, rubbish bins, blow-up plastic dolphins, and toilet bowls.
