The first iteration of ‘The VICE Guide To Being Better’ offered audiences an intimate glimpse into the lives of remarkable individuals including Caroline Cull, Red Ray, Demon Derriere, Rowi Singh, Keiynan Lonsdale, Sabrina Frederick and Brittany Long, exploring their pivotal roles in pushing society forward. Through candid conversation, these inspiring individuals shared their personal journeys, reflecting on the challenges and triumphs they’ve experienced in their pursuit for positive change.

The campaign and dedicated VICE vertical immersed audiences in a world of content, with themes including asexuality, women in sport, cultural representation, fat liberation, accessibility and more. Embracing diverse perspectives, the vertical sparked meaningful conversations and toasts to a future characterised by inclusivity and collective progress.

Spyros Asteriou, head of NSW agency partnerships at Pedestrian Group said, “We raise our glasses to the Johnnie Walker team, a true partnership facilitated by Drum and Foundation, where they allowed us to push the boundaries and challenge Aussies to keep walking towards progress. The partnership uses VICE’s iconic voice to uncover stories for us all to look at things from a new POV, all whilst giving us a guide to being better. We’re excited to continue our partnership in telling humanfirst stories for a second phase.”

Jodi McLeod, marketing manager at Johnnie Walker said, “We’re so excited to be working with VICE, Foundation and DRUM for a second year in a row, continuing to celebrate and amplify the voices of those who are leading the charge for societal progress. Johnnie Walker has always represented a strive for progress, and with this partnership we continue the legacy of ‘Keep Walking’.
