Perrier revisits Goude’s celebrated lion for new “fines bulles”

It’s brave, even foolhardy, to remake a classic commercial – Pepsi made a hash of it at the Super Bowl – but Ogilvy Paris has done just that for Perrier, revisiting Jean Paul Goude’s famous ‘Lion’ from 1990.

Here’s Goude’s original.

Perrier now comes with “fines bulles” so Johnny Green’s new effort has a girl and a lion cub.

Will people remember the original ad? No doubt they’ll be reminded.

Perrier’s new effort? 8.

Goude’s from all those years ago? We’ve never had a 10 and we’re not about to start now.

Good idea from Ogilvy.
