There's a lighter world

Mahou Premium Light is a new beer with 35% less calories. The spanish agency El Laboratorio commissioned an advert to director Nico Caicoya from Agosto, with the claim “There’s a lighter world. Coming up?”.

To express this concept, the story would show a couple of dancers taunting gravity. But Nico Caicoya didn't want to use posproduction effects, instead of that, a rotating set was built for the shooting in Prague. When it seems that the actors dance all over the walls, it’s the camera and the entire set the ones that are turning upside-down.

Choreography was created by Suple, a choreographer that has worked before with artists such as Jamiroquai and Madness. On the other side, the music is a cover of Technotronic’s Pump up the jam, made by the canadian swing trio Lost Fingers.

[...] ”There’s a lighter world. Coming up?” Mahou Premium Light is een nieuwe Spaans calorie-arm biertje van San Miguel (35 pct minder). Reclamebureau El Laboratorio  maakte bijgaande vrolijke commercial in Praag. Waarom daar? Geen idee. Er werd overigens niet gerommeld met de computer in de zogenaamde postproductie van het filmpje; de regisseur werkte liever met een draaiende set. Het effect is leuk. De muziek is een cover van Technotronic’s Pump up the jam, gemaakt door het Canadese swing trio Lost Fingers. Ook dat meldt Adverbox. [...]

This is great, yet I have never heard of the brand. Is it and English brand?
