Pink and Poodle

Pink and Poodle is a fairly small agency that was co-founded by Wencke van Amstel. The agency’s biggest succes so far is for Jillz, a cider brand by Heineken, targeted at women.

Jillz: Not for men!

‘WTF?!!!’ was our first reaction when we saw this commercial for Jillz. Apart from the fact that we don’t drool on male hard bodies, we just didn’t know what to think of it. But after watching it a few times, it slowly started to grow on us. It has a Moulin Rouge over-the-topness and production… More.
