Trae Young and Anthony Edwards Help Sprite Ditch the Green for Bottle Rebrand

SMUGGLER's Tony Yacenda directs the surrealist spot launching Sprite's new look

Trae Young and Anthony Edwards Help Sprite Ditch the Green for Bottle Rebrand

Tony Yacenda directs the latest work for Sprite, a quick-hitting, visually surrealist spot featuring NBA stars Trae Young and Anthony Edwards. Tony skilfully honours the metronome, constructing a comedic timing that serves as the spine of the film. 

Created for Sprite’s bottle rebrand, the spot showcases Tony’s expert ability to pull authentic performances out of non-actors, playing to Trae and Anthony’s natural strengths and charisma. Tony even pays homage to the old Drake ‘The Spark’ Sprite commercial as Anthony’s face disassembles while standing in a recording studio. 

With eye-popping visual effects, a quick cadence, and a perfectly casted duo, the spot is effortlessly fun and, after over 60 years of Sprite’s green bottle, certainly does justice to the new bottle rebrand.
