Such a fun campaign by DDB Toronto. Such a perfect example of bringing a benefit to life. Do it in a self-deprecating way like we have here and you’ve got a fun, engaging and memorable campaign on your hands.
The product: Bru-V – A glass that protects your beer from the sun’s UV rays, which offers you beer that tastes ‘slightly better’. Not 100% better, amazing, incredible or revolutionary – just… slightly better.
The solution: Show side by side images where one is only slightly better than it was before. A girl with a beard ends up with a just a moustache, a guy with two skew eyes ends up with one pointing the right way and last but not least – a bald man doesn’t get his full head of hair back, but he gets something.
By being self-deprecating and not over-claiming (as we know brands love to do) Bru-V does a great job of humanising their brand and bringing people along for the ride. Let’s be honest – if you’re in the market for a special glass for your beer that will make it just a little bit better, the chances are you’ll appreciate this kind of humour.
