The "Go Beyond The Cover" Campaign by Tuxedo Wins Two Bees Awards in San Francisco

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 24, 2012) - Tuxedo won two awards during the 3rd edition of the Bees Awards, held today in San Francisco. The Bees Awards are the first international awards focused on social media. Over 40 brands and agencies presented their projects to a jury of experts who recognized the best campaigns.

The "Go Beyond The Cover" campaign by TUXEDO, launched in October 2011 and featuring Zombie Boy, alias Rico Genest, won in two categories, namely Best Branded Viral Video and Best Art Direction.

In competition for the 2012 edition:

Best Branded Viral Video
Go Beyond The Cover by Tuxedo, Canada - WINNER
Yaris - It's a Car! by Saatchi & Saatchi LA, USA
YouTube Interventions by Ogilvy Cape Town, South Africa
K-Swiss MFCEO - Funny or Die by 72andSunny
Best Art Direction
Go Beyond The Cover by Tuxedo, Canada - WINNER
Bokeh & Art on Valentine (Samsung NX Lens) by inmD, South Korea
United Colors of Benetton - UNHATE by 72andSunny, USA

Those are the second and third international awards won by Tuxedo in 2012. The agency also won a Grand Prix CRÉA in Montreal and a Brand Innovators Award in New York City.

Arising from a meeting between Zombie Boy and Ludwig Ciupka, Creative Director at Tuxedo who discovered Rico in 2009, this collaboration resulted in a project aiming to highlight the importance our society gives to looks, and how they can be misleading. The basic idea was to "transform" Zombie Boy by completely hiding his tattoos (face and body) with Dermablend Leg & Body Cover and Tattoo Primer products.
