A tip of the hat on this one…. well done.

This is pretty cool, it’s part of the latest campaign for Tropicana Canada named, “Brighter Mornings for Brighter Days”, set to roll-out after the closing ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics. As a kick-off to the campaign they ventured out to Inuvik, a small town out in the remote Northwest Territories, in order to light up a helium balloon capable of emitting 100,000 lumens.

This piece was directed by Samir Mallal for BBDO Toronto and Film Group, Vancouver/Radke Film Group, Toronto.
