Havas London has created the first ever ad campaign for beer brand Madrí Excepcional, helping to celebrate ‘El alma de Madrid’ – ‘The Soul of Madrid’

‘Door Roja’ is the brand’s first above-the-line marketing campaign and includes TV, video-on-demand, out-of-home, experiential and social activations. Running for the next three months, it brings the vibrancy, warmth and progressive spirit of modern Madrid to the UK. At its heart is a new 60” TV ad, shot on location in Madrid by directing duo Julien & Quentin through Pulse Films, which combines the historic soul of the city with its open, urban, convivial present.

The campaign also includes three large, striking murals – in London’s Shoreditch, Manchester’s Northern Quarter and Birmingham’s Digbeth, hand-drawn by artist The Red Dress. Earlier this year, to mark the May Bank Holiday, Havas London and sister agencies Field Day and Red Havas devised an exclusive Madrí Excepcional takeover at London’s Vinegar Yard, bringing together Madrid-based artists, food vendors and street sounds.
