MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Every week, the advertising industry elevates creativity with works that get people talking.

True enough, there is no shortage of great campaigns for the adobo Magazine team to admire and celebrate in time for each week’s round-up.

From gripping stories that stay with you for hours after seeing them for the first time to brilliant engagements that bring the brand to new heights, here are the campaigns that crossed our radar this week:

Turning pollution into a perfume, one endangered scent at a time

Boticário, a leading brand under the Boticário Group, has launched Project Extinto in collaboration with creative agency AlmapBBDO, to address the critical issue of waste management and environmental preservation. In response to Brazil’s low recycling rate of 4%, the initiative began with the release of a unique fragrance named Extinto, inspired by the unpolluted scent of Rio de Janeiro’s Guanabara Bay, a region plagued by 98 tons of daily waste dumping. The fragrance, part of a limited series, serves as a non-saleable call to action to raise awareness about pollution and improper waste disposal.


As part of the campaign, AlmapBBDO created a video manifesto featuring actual footage of Guanabara Bay and designed exclusive bottles mimicking global landmarks. The Extinto Project, supported by the Boticário Group Foundation for Nature Protection, is set to expand to four continents, with fragrances inspired by endangered landscapes.

The partnership is showcased in a film highlighting the genuine bond between Hope and her dog, Yuna. In a heartfelt letter, Hope expressed her commitment to Yuna’s well-being, aligning with Dr. Shiba’s mission to provide optimal pet care.

Hope’s dedication to pet welfare resonates with Dr. Shiba’s values, and the brand also collaborates with Pawssion Project, an animal rescue organization, ensuring a portion of every purchase contributes to animal rescue efforts.

How a camera is paving the way for an all-new ball game

During the Betclic Elite basketball game between Paris Basketball and Saint-Quentin Basketball on February 11, a player and two referees were equipped with the “Betclic Cam,” a mounted camera capturing unprecedented live footage during the official match. Conceptualized by creative agency Marcel, this innovative approach has never been seen before in an official sports event. Betclic, the title partner of the National Basketball League since 2021, collaborated with MINDFLY to develop the mounted camera to offer fans intense, entertaining, and immersive experiences.
