campaign.

campaign for Remy Martin, the leading luxury cognac producer in France and the

where things are always getting interesting," says Vincent Duhem, Vice
President of Marketing at RCUSA.  

The out-of-home features include: bulletins, wildpostings, 30 and 8 sheets,
and a three-dimensional, hi-tech, virtual window where consumers may interact
with the campaign.  "We are excited to introduce a different way to reach our
consumers," says Roberto Cruz, Brand Director of Remy Martin at RCUSA. "The
interactive window that simulates an exclusive nightclub is currently in
production."

Remy Martin, the esteemed producer from the Heart of the Cognac region since
1724, exclusively uses eaux-de-vie with the greatest ageing potential.  The
portfolio of cognac includes V.S.O.P, XO Excellence(R), 1738 Accord Royal(R),
