Top 6: October 10th 2012
John West's latest campaign from BWM, Sydney builds on the 'John West, The Best' equity. The multi channel approach tells a modern day sequel to the famous bear vs. fisherman story and invites consumers to participate in an epic, ongoing adventure. The television commercials, Into the Woods, see the iconic John West fisherman pitched against his long-standing nemesis, the bear, and cast alongside a beautiful heroine for the first time.
