AUCKLAND, Yesterday: TVNZ production outfit Blacksand, with Ikon and Coca-Cola Oceania have shot Character Required – a series of Schweppes tvcs fronted by star actor Kiwi Robbie Magasiva (currently appearing in Wentworth).

Filmed in cinematic black & white, the campaign draws on creative used internationally by Schweppes, who enlisted Blacksand and TVNZ’s commercial teams to work alongside its media agency Ikon to strike a more locally relevant note.

The tvcs draw on Magasiva’s high-wattage screen presence to deliver viewer classification guidance for mature audiences. He suavely welcomes viewers to a handpicked selection of premium programmes screening on TVNZ, reinforcing Schweppes brand positioning as the sophisticated choice for discerning adult consumers.


“The partnership between Coca-Cola Oceania, TVNZ and Ikon proved to be a winner and we are thrilled with the result!”


Gina Beck of Coca-Cola Oceania said: “The new Schweppes campaign works across many levels. Not only does it strengthen the brand’s iconic, discerning positioning in a relevant Kiwi way, it also captures the creative idea that with age comes experience, and it takes experience and character to appreciate a Schweppes.

“Alongside this, the TVNZ Blacksand and commercial teams created a clever role for the brand – to use Schweppes as a vehicle to deliver the adult classification message.
