Also, The World Cup is the biggest of all the sporting events and with the whole world having their eyes on it, its popularity is almost unquestionable. So itâs no surprise that brands pull out all the stops when it comes to advertising. We take a look at the top three brands that totally nailed their World Cup ads and what makes the campaigns cut it.
Coca-Cola South Pacific announced its 2018 FIFA World Cup partnership by launching a campaign that encourages soccer fans to grab a Coke before the game. Created by Ogilvy, the television commercial shows fans missing the soccer game because they left to buy a Coke at the last minute. The campaign aired during the FIFA World Cup final and throughout other matches as well as across digital, social and points of sale.
The campaign, titled âLight up the FIFA World Cupâ and produced by the companyâs lead agency Anomaly, has beautifully encapsulated the unparalleled euphoric energy of the worldâs biggest sporting event. It features delivery of beer by drones and deployment of noise-activated red light cups. The campaign shows an ambitious beer delivery where drones carry Budweiser from its brewery in St. Louis, Missouri (US), to fans watching World Cup, from Shanghai to Rio de Janeiro, and to Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
Pepsi announced its global LOVE IT. LIVE IT. campaign in support of the 2018 World Cup, featuring stars such as Leo Messi, Toni Kroos, Carli Lloyd and Dele Alli. The TVC features the footballers running around a city, firing off blue paint-filled footballs that splatter blue paint all over the players, surrounding architecture and laughing bystanders as they âpaint the world blueâ

These ads not only hit in to the emotion of the game but also successfully raise awareness of their respective brands.
