When â€œWoman on Topâ€ meets â€œAcelera AÃªâ€ you end up with a festive, foody advert for Arisco.
Just in time for the Carnaval season, thanks to the creatives at Ogilvy Brasil with a little celebrity help from Ivete Sangalo, it’s a bit fun and fantastic with the print images having us sing “RefrÃ£o“(3:15) to ourselves.
You may remember the romantic-comedy, released in 2000, starring PenÃ©lope Cruz and Murilo BenÃcio (ah Lucas/Leo/Diogo, O Clone, we dieeee! [El Clon if you watched on Telemundo]) set in Salvador, Brazil and San Francisco, United States about an amazing chef, who leaves her confused, disgruntled husband for clarity, food and celebrity in California.
She ends up having her own cooking show on local San Fran television and Iveteâ€™s commercial is reminiscent of thatâ€¦and not just because of the Brazilian connection.
Something about the kitchen and all the cooking makes us think a way cooler version of Rachel Ray-crossed with PenÃ©lope Cruz and perhaps a few chili peppers.
And we wonâ€™t lie, we enjoy the twist on â€œAcelera AÃªâ€, which reminds us greatly of what Akon, the Spice Girls and Britney Spears (although not a play on an original song, but rather her musical style) all did for Pepsi and their customized advertisements in the past:
â€œMove Overâ€ â€“ Spice Girls
â€œOh, Africaâ€ â€“ Akon
â€œThe Joy of Pepsiâ€ â€“ Britney Spears
â€œ”Arisco, tempero com gostinho brasileiro.” Ã‰ com esse conceito que a marca da Unilever leva ao ar um novo comercial estrelado por Ivete Sangalo. A cantora solta a voz em â€œAcelera AÃª,â€ um de seus sucessos que ganhou uma nova letra especialmente para o filme da marca Arisco.â€
â€Arisco”, seasoned with Brazilian flavor. ” It is with this concept that the brand, Unilever, aired a new commercial starring Ivete Sangalo. The singer sang â€œAcelera AÃª,â€ one of her hits, adding new lyrics especially for the filming of the Arisco commerical.
You may remember, that this was the same agency that caused (good) headlines back in the summer of 2009 for their â€œPoopâ€ campaign for Huggies Brasil, featuring the faces of real babies and the â€˜poopâ€™ face that newborns make:
Sold under Arisco, Bein Alta and Palmeiron, Arisco Produtos Alimenticios SA manufactures and distributes canned food products throughout Brazil, headquartered in SÃ£o Paulo. As of February 8, 2000, Arisco Produtos Alimenticios SA because a subsidiary of Unilever Bestfoods (Holding) LLC.
