Bridge Worldwide’s ‘Can Hands’ Wins Gold at the 2009 Cannes Lion Awards

June 25, 2009

CINCINNATI, June 25 /PRNewswire/ — Bridge Worldwide’s “Can Hands,” created for Procter & Gamble’s Pringles, received the prestigious Gold Cyber Lion at the 2009 Cannes Lions Awards. This was the first Gold Cyber Lion win for any Procter & Gamble brand and Bridge Worldwide’s first submission to the Cannes Lions competition. The prestigious Gold Lion is considered by many to be the most competitive award in advertising. Only a handful of Gold Lions were awarded from the thousands of entries received in this highly competitive Cyber category. As described in the entry, “Can Hands” is a rich media banner ad that shows a young, online audience how fun, eccentric — and even downright weird — life with Pringles can be. As the user clicks on the banner again and again (and again, and again), they go deeper and deeper into a story with surprises at every turn without ever leaving the ad. This tactic engaged the consumer in creating and participating in the brand experience. It was also entertaining and fun while leveraging the product benefits.

Reflecting on the honor, Chief Creative Officer Peter Schwartz commented, “Pringles ‘Can Hands’ is exemplary of our creative mantra: great ideas, beautifully executed in new and innovative ways.”

Winners of the Cyber Lion awards were announced on Thursday, June 25, 2009. To see the complete List of Gold Cyber Lion winners, please visit: http://work.canneslions.com/cyber/?award=2.
