Alka Seltzer: tv / print / urinal ads / games / webfilms / pizza boxes

Speedy, the 1950s icon, is now your trusted wing-man.

Florence Buchanan and Karen McIntyre creative directed the first cross-franchise campaign for Alka Seltzer and Alka Seltzer Plus to attract a younger, male target. 

They brought back the brand's distinctive 1950s icon Speedy Alka Seltzer in tv:15s, print (Maxim, Playboy and Rolling Stone), pizza boxes, online games and The Great American Road Trip, a series of webfilms about food, drink and good times, featuring Rhett and Link with Speedy.

Alka Seltzer also introduced a new product, Wake-Up Call, which claimed to treat hangovers.

Alka Seltzer Plus was the Official Cold Medicine of the U.S. Ski Team, so naturally Speedy went on the slopes with star Olympic hopefuls, Lindsay Vonn and Billy Demong.
