Facebook Gives Heineken Its Top Award For The Brand’s “If We Made It” Campaign
Created by the ad agency Droga5, the campaign enlisted a number of celebrities to star in a spoof Super Bowl ad, or as the ad claims, the spot Heineken would have made if it had the budget for a Super Bowl ad.
According to Facebook, the Studio Awards recognize brands and agencies using the social media platform for creative storytelling.
“The Studio Awards don’t simply celebrate the best work,” said Facebook chief creative officer Mark D’Arcy, “They shine a spotlight on the brands and agencies who are accelerating this change, connecting to the people that really matter and driving growth in their business.”
This year, a new award was added to the list, the Facebook for Good award to celebrate not-for-profit campaigns. Amnesty International won the Good Award for its “Trial by Timeline” campaign produced by BBDO.
