MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 18, 2012) - Dermablend USA's (L'Oréal Group) Go Beyond The Cover campaign won the Best Digital Video prize at the Brand innovators Awards which took place at New York City's Gansevoort Park on May 16th. The Brand Innovators Awards celebrate leadership and innovation in brand marketing for the 2011 calendar year, which saw an impressive crop of players.

The Go Beyond the Cover campaign created by Tuxedo Agency was launched in October 2011 features Zombie Boy, aka Rico Genest. The video (as well as the Behind the Scenes) has garnered over 15 million views and more than 650, 000 Facebook shares.

Competing in that category:

Go Beyond The Cover by Dermablend, L'Oréal USA
Jennifer Aniston Goes Viral by Smartwater, The Coca-Cola Company
Angry Birds Live by T-Mobile
The Force by Volkswagen

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's Leg & Body Cover et Tattoo Primer.
