Steinlager‘s Believe campaign, developed at DDB New Zealand, has won Best of Show for Promo Lotus category at Adfest 2012. The campaign was launched in the lead up to the Rugby World Cup held in New Zealand in 2011. Steinlager released a limited run of the White can, first introduced in 1981 and discontinued in 1992, to build historic connection with the first Rugby World Cup held in 1987.
As an unconditional supporter, Steinlager has been through the same highs and lows as the fans for the last 25 years. While we’ve had that one magic moment, it’s been a long time between drinks since we’ve tasted glory. This spot tells the story of a man and his can, and the journey we’ve all been through to get to this moment. Click on the image below to play the We Believe video in YouTube (HD)
