Free Ice Cream for Your Smile

And finally augmented reality is having a stronger place in our daily lives. The last project was by Unilever and SapientNitro. They’ve developed what they’re calling the world’s first smile-activated vending machine.
The machine uses augmented reality to draw passersby into a branded world — i.e. when one looks at the screen at the front of the machine, one’s face is outfitted with mustaches or so...
After it prompts you to smile, the dessert-vending device measures the wideness of your grin using facial recognition technology, snaps a pic, and, with your permission, uploads that snap to facebook. (Here's the facebook page; Cannes Sapient Nitro’s Facebook Page). Next, you choose the free treat of your choice via the touchscreen and collect your sweet reward. (Treats will only be free at Cannes.)
Simples :)

We already know that everything's about the World Cup nowadays.
Maradona, the coach of Argentina, said he'll celebrate by running around naked in Buenos Aires if they will win the World Cup. So Pepsi made a good move by saying it will drop its label as well.
Pepsi announced that the company's soft drink bottles will be sold for a week in Argentina with no label if that country wins the World cup.
"If the coach goes naked, we will, too. Pepsi promises."
Agency: BBDO Argentina
And here's the press ad;
