Stella Artois launch a new global brand campaign with this animated advert titled “Musical Notes”. The warm, jazz-themed commercial highlights Stella Artois’ long association with the arts and film as a trumpeter walks in to a bar and begins to play.
The musical notes fly away and slowly invite people to the bar. The advert concludes with a voice-over saying “Together again in the Life Artois”.
