The 2013 TEDxSydney event last month showcased a great short film by Saatchi & Saatchi and Heckler showing the reaction of young children experiencing their first taste of an array of challenging foods such as vegemite and anchovies. This is a great concept showing heightened interest in the senses from a creative perspective, a trend MPDClick have forecast to take commercial shape for Spring Summer 15.
Set to orchestral background music and played in slow motion, the reactions are so intense the viewer can almost feel themselves the taste sensations being witnessed on screen. View the video above.
