The CampaignInteractive music video featuring key global talent, showcasing the ‘cool’ tech Shell supports which is helping to improve the lives of communities around the world. The visual concept was a “hive of energy” – a 3D honeycomb in which each hexagon contained an artist and a sustainable technology which aims to bring more or cleaner energy to the world.
Creative ExecutionThe interactive video allows audiences to create their own personalized music video by engaging with the story of various energy initiatives and switch between the six artists as they sing the song, "Best Day of my Life". With each touch and swipe, users are able to layer the soundtrack with various tunes and artist vocals. They can also click to engage animated elements of the Shell #makethefuture bright energy ideas, which will provide an illustrated example of these initiatives in action.The Best Day of My Life music video united acclaimed performers all around the world such as Pixie Lott, Luan Santana, Tan WeiWei, Jennifer Hudson, Yemi Alade and the legendary producer, Steve Aoki. The video was launched on social networks, featured in landmark squares in NY, London and Buenos Aires. It made history as Snapchat's first interactive vertical music video.
The music video received more than 816 million views in 99 markets, becoming top viral campaign for several weeks and one of the most shared video adverts of 2016 - the best-performing content in Shell’s history. An interactive version of the video was shown to hold the attention of digital natives 12 times longer. 329 pieces of coverage across lifestyle, news, music and business titles were achieved and The Guardian – a long-standing Shell critic – wrote one of the most positive pieces; praising Shell for its leadership in engaging a global millennial audience in the energy debate. Best Day of My Life made energy problems visible, tangible and shareable. Beyond music video, it was an invitation to make a better future together.
Millennials want to be part of something bigger than themselves. We can get their attention through their passion points, inspiring them, raising awareness of the solutions available and how easy it is to participate, offering them an optimistic invitation to participate, and engaging their interest and participation.
Ice Skaters shows the dreamy and slightly surreal spectacle of a middle aged couple spinning and gliding on the polished wood floors of an elegant, high-ceilinged apartment in their socks.

PS21 Madrid, the creative transformation company set up by founder of creative agency dommo Agustín Vivancos, was in its first year when the team began work on Searching for the Special Colour of Seville.
