The German office’s latest sports client is none other than Bayer Leverkusen. The agency has developed a comic concept for this season’s champions league competitors. The mission: to enhance entertainment for an ever-passionate fan base. These supporters formed the inspiration for our quest. It’s a fact every fan believes they know better than the manager in charge. So when a ‘Think Tank’ of four real life football crazy tacticians meet to discuss upcoming matches, there can only be one result. The FANtastic 04 is their name, winning is their game. Including a headed goal against FC Barcelona, many of the party’s predictions have come true, leading many to believe the FANtastic 04 are a group of football geniuses. The lighthearted style and a script as farfetched as they come makes the FANtastic 04 as entertaining to read, as it is to create.
