Tres Colacion, Global Creative Lead at BBDO said “New Year’s Evening is one of a handful of the worldwide moments that truly unites individuals, so it was incredible to match this with the widespread understanding that on an individual level the festival doesn’t actually occur until you hear from individuals you know and love, and that as a general rule those individuals can just contact you at that time through WhatsApp. In each format, we set off to catch the quintessence of what it seems like to get the message you’ve been sitting tight for.

Playing between these two components permitted us to make a sensational perception of dreams and recollections that I think truly rejuvenated the enthusiastic exhibitions.”
