Film from James Rouse, Wanda & Outsider features cover of Beach Boys’ ‘Kokomo’
Partners for 22 years, evian and BETC Paris, have set their latest film on an exotic, slightly rugged beach, treating the ears as well as the eyes with a cover of the classic Beach Boys hit “Kokomo”, performed by Lilly Wood and The Prick.
In this short film, a surfer falls when taking on a wave, then wakes up on a beach surrounded by stylish, cool, and incredibly young surfers – which might have something to do with the fact that the only bar on the beach is serving evian.
Staying true to the “Live young” signature, the film reaffirms evian’s vision of youth: a positive and universal value and an openness to the world and the unexpected, regardless of age.
Directed by James Rouse and produced by Wanda studios, the “Baby Bay” spot will be surfing the web from April 20th, before making waves on cinema and TV screens.
A virtual reality application designed by agency Versus Fully Tailored Creation in partnership with Quiksilver will present a fun and outlandish immersive 360° experience inside a wave. Put yourself in the shoes – or rather the wetsuit – of a baby and perform some iconic surfing moves. Available from April 19th on Google and Apple Appstores.
Who’s that girl ?
For the outdoor campaign, a famously baby-faced it-girl will be appearing in the US as a surfer with her baby lookalike. Find out who it is at the latest web surfer hotspot, the hub babybay.evian.com.
Packs and bottles will display images of baby surfers, but also their adult versions, as they would have looked before drinking evian. A collector’s bottle that reveals the “babyfied” reflection of the film’s hero through the water will also be distributed in large retailers and convenient stores.
evian x colette:
The legendary Parisian concept store colette will also be experiencing a wave of youthful energy as of April 20th. Here, customers will find three baby surfer t-shirts, as well as special edition flip-flops for adults that leave a baby footprint in the sand.
And one last message from the baby crab you’ll meet on the babybay.evian.com hub: don’t leave your bottle on the beach. Remember that evian bottles are recyclable.
