In collaboration with Publicis Conseil agency, NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, is launching its exciting new worldwide advertising campaign “Creativity Reinvents The Classics”, featuring will.i.am, known for his innovative approach to his music. The holistic advertising campaign which celebrates the power of creativity by showcasing the similarities in the creation process of both music and coffee.

For will.i.am the partnership felt natural, “I chose to collaborate with NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto because the core of the campaign is around exploring creativity, which is a huge part of who I am and central to what I do. NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto is committed to producing high quality, great tasting coffee, just as I am committed to producing top quality music.”
