Unilever is launching a TV ad to promote its new Lynx Excite range, following its launch on iAd.

The 30-second and 60-second TV spots will launch in the UK on 3 February and are being supported by press executions and Facebook activity.

Creative was shot in Split, Croatia, and is meant to represent ’a picturesque European town’.
