About the tribute

The idea on Sphere was conceived by the agency Crispin Porter Bogusky (CPB) and this has become historic, as for the first time an original Brazilian brand appears on Sphere.

“On this very important date, Ayrton Senna deserved something great, in keeping with his importance to Brazilian history. Together with Guaraná Antarctica, a brand that is also a source of national pride, and which is also a success abroad, our idea was to make the whole country feel that pride of being Brazilian again, reliving the emotion of vibrating for our idol, who brought everyone together in front of the TV on Sundays,” said Marcos Medeiros, partner and CCO CPB.
