Pepsico’s H2Oh! flavoured water, a popular drink in South America, is presented as the drink everyone loves in “Braids” (Trencitas), a television commercial which won a Gold Film Lion at Cannes International Advertising Festival 2011. Launched in January 2011, the commercial shows a girl bringing her boyfriend to meet the family. As each member of the family interacts with the new guy, he or she imitates the twirling of braided hair first modeled by the girlfriend.
