Creative Juice\Kuala Lumpur cooked up a quirky tale about a servant and his tea technique

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA — To support Lipton's Teh Tarik brand of instant tea, Creative Juice\Kuala Lumpur conjured the spirit of a Wes Anderson film.

The two-minute film features an Anderson-style parable about a clever servant with an innovative way of preparing the Unilever brand's new 3-in-1 Instant Milk Tea.

"We had fun shooting this quirky Wes Anderson-inspired film amidst copious amounts of tea," said VJ Anand, executive creative director at Creative Juice\Kuala Lumpur. "Kudos to our Unilever client who believed in the idea and made it a stand out amidst the sea of monotony in this tough category."
