For many New Zealanders, the best form of currency for thanking a mate is beers.

Speight’s took this to the next level, allowing their fans the chance to dynamically change the iconic three stars label – putting their mate’s name front and centre, along with a personalised message of thanks. We worked with DDB to digitally extend their TVC and Cheers Beers concept – seeing over 6500 mates thanked with their own personalised Speight’s bottles.
