Much on-line banter surrounds Evian’s rollerskating babies dancing to a remix of the Sugarhill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight in Evian’s international ad campaign for this summer.

The campaign, by Paris-based agency BETC Euro RSCG, has already reached 6.4 Million views on YouTube showing the hipster babies performing old school rollerskating tricks to show the rejuvenating effects of mineral water.

Evian last used babies in their much discussed underwater ballet TV ad. The latest approach is to use social media to best effect.
