Heineken, one of the world’s largest names in the spirits industry, was the official sponsor of the United European Football Association Champions league. With a long established position as one of the preeminent beer producers, Heineken wanted a unique ad to draw attention to its position as a main sponsor for this event.
Heineken turned to Americhip to utilize our proprietary audio technology to create a captivating advertisement. As Playboy readers opened the new issue, they heard the instantly recognizable UEFA Champions League Anthem. With great audio fidelity and Americhip’s thin-profile audio module, readers were exposed to a clever insert which heightened the excitement for the pending Championships and emphatically reinforced Heineken’s leadership position.
