Write a short summary of what happens in the radio or audio execution or campaign.

Please check: http://justdidit.eu/BeerReviews YouTube is filled with beer reviews: videos made by beer-enthusiasts from all over the world, sharing their honest findings about beer brands. We discovered that most of those Youtube reviews were exclusively positive when it comes to the classic Carlsberg Lager pilsner. In fact, some of them sounded so much like an ad for Carlsberg that, well, we turned them into ads for Carlsberg. Important notice!! no beer reviewer was paid! We asked their permission, but all youtube reviews you hear are completely unbiased and taken as such, from Youtube (which explains the poor 'voice acting' quality). Probably the most honest radio campaign.

Cultural / Context information for the jury

Do you know those people on Youtube who taste all kind of beer brands just to give their honest findings about it? YouTube Beer reviewers! If you don't, you should search it. It’s a huge community. When we checked those reviews for Carlsberg pilsner, we found out that almost all of them were positive. In fact, they were so positive that we used them for Carlsberg ads. As such, unbiased, taken from YouTube.

SofaKingDrunk 45sec.: Beer reviewer: SofaKingDrunk back again. Did one of you just know is Carlsberg… uhm… the original Carlsberg, brewed in Copenhagen since 1847. The Danes have been brewing this stuff for years. So there we have sort of uhm… sort of light, goldy yellow, sweet, sweet grain, a sweet uhm digestive biscuit. Little bit of honey, nice and light, refreshing. SofaKingDrunk, see you in another beer review. VO: This completely objective YouTube review by ‘SofaKingDrunk’ sounds so much like an ad for our beer, that we used it as an ad for our beer. Carlsberg. Probably the best beer in the world.
