Southern Comfort Whatever’s Comfortable
“Whatever’s Comfortable”, an advertising campaign for Southern Comfort liquor, was created to celebrate and inspire the awesome attitude of people who are completely comfortable with themselves. “Beach,” the launch commercial for the campaign, introduces to a man who owns his self-comfortableness so completely as he walks casually down the beach. This guy is owning it. The campaign continues in 2013 with “Comfortable Weather Guy”, in which the guy appears in his beach outfit in climates across the world. The campaign has won recognition at the British Arrows (Gold for Commercials) and the International Andy Awards (Gold for Existing Music, Silver for Beverage – Alcohol)
