MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Now that we are in a new world, with new norms and unfamiliar challenges, who can we mainly rely on but ourselves? For Cobra Energy Drink, it is our own strength that should power us through to survive these tough times. That thriving in the new world begins from within.
Directed by Sid Maderazo, in collaboration with The Acid House and FCB Manila, Cobra unleashed a full-animation spot that exhibits workers and their strong promises to themselves, as they rise to the challenges of the new world—their “Panatang Makabangon” (“Oath to Rise”).
In its development stages, it was made sure that everything in the video was compliant to new norms—protective equipment, distancing, etc. The characters were brought to life by co-director and Acid House head Ivan Despi, in the image of the Cobra persona: Unbeatable spirit and energy with a purpose.
