Chiat\Day LA Gets to the Heart of ‘G’…We Think

By Kiran Aditham 

With a little help from the Godfather of Soul James Brown and a handful of athletes including Kevin Durant and Serena Williams, TBWA\Chiat\Day LA continues to push the philosophy and product line of Gatorade’s “G.” The agency once again resorts to the three-phase motif of “The Before, The During, The After” and shows that within the sugary energy drink spokesperson lies the heart of a badass. Camp G tells us that this latest campaign “metaphorically examines the story inside the athletes.” Whatever the case, at least they’ve made some strides since 2009. Credits after the jump…
