Lipton Ice Tea Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman is the star of “Drink Positive”, a new French advertising campaign for Lipton Ice Tea, appearing in television commercials shot in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In “Tokyo Dancing Hotel” Jackman’s character is inspired by drinking Lipton Ice Tea to get the staff and guests at his hotel dancing. In “Hard Day’s Work” Jackman’s character is seen filming a passionate scene with Mexican actress Ana de la Reguera then pausing for an ice tea before returning to finish filming. Jason Green, chief marketing officer of Lipton, says: “The new adverts highlight the key values of Lipton Ice Tea, which are positivity, optimism and the uplifting qualities of the drink.”
