In October 2023, presidential elections were held in Argentina amid a complex social climate, marked by a change of government. There was widespread uncertainty about what would happen, with estimates of consumption downturns and monetary devaluation.

Philco aimed to maintain its leadership in air conditioner sales and association with the category. The goal was for consumers to think of Philco when considering purchasing an air conditioner.


The pieces are straightforward. We'll depict individuals cooling off under an air conditioner. Each spot will feature a voiceover recounting various scenarios experienced by the protagonists. Whether it's a dad coerced into dancing at his child's school function or someone enduring an overly long meeting that could have been summarized in an email, etc. All conclude with the tagline "Everybody needs to cool down."
