DDB’s one-shot shoot for Pump

EditorTVCs, News Make a Comment

DDB has created a new campaign for bottled water brand Pump, including a new TVC – shot in a single take, to convey the message that staying hydrated puts you in a clearer frame of mind.

Feel the flow, a 60” spot launched this week, encapsulates Pump’s new positioning on the benefits of staying hydrated, using a group of drummers performing a flowing beat.

The single-shot ad is set in the city, where a group of drummers form a synchronised beat on hundreds of plastic buckets. The procession of bucket-drummers snakes through the streets, pausing only to refresh with Pump as the one-take shot tracks their flowing beat.

Pump head of marketing & design Leigh Moss says this campaign serves as a uniquely visual illustration of Pump’s new brand positioning.

“When you’re properly hydrated you feel alive and fluid,” she said. “Everything just clicks and feels great. For this campaign we wanted to capture this state of flow in a new, creative way while still incorporating our iconic imagery.”

‘Worth it!’
DDB chief creative officer Damon Stapleton says the spot presents the brand in a new, exciting way.

“We wanted the spot to show Pump in a fun, energetic light while connecting with the Pump brand everybody knows and loves,” Stapleton said.

“We’ve done something a bit different with this film in shooting it in one continuous take, which presented interesting technical challenges, but when you see how well that one 60” shot looks — it was absolutely worth it.”

The campaign is supported by a 60” cinema spot, 30” & 15” TVCs, social content and OOH.
