At the closing award ceremony, Ogilvy & Mather took home a prestigious Titanium Lion for Ogilvy & Mather Buenos Aires’ ‘Beer Tooth Implant’ for Cerveza Salta beer, an initiative which rewarded South American rugby players who’d lost their teeth with an ingenious tooth implant that could open a bottle of beer.
