CUB and Clemenger BBDO Melbourne latest work for the brand
CUB and Clemenger BBDO Melbourne are launching their latest Carlton MID work. It’s the next chapter in the long running and much loved “Stay a little longer” campaign that reminds men to spend more time with their mates drinking Carlton MID. A campaign that in just a few short years has helped Carlton MID become Australia’s number two mid-strength beer, and number one in WA.
This latest work tells the story of a group of mates ‘coincidentally’ running into each other at a resort they’ve all taken their wives to, for some precious ‘couple time’.
Coincidence was directed by Brian Aldrich and created by Ant Phillips and Richard Williams, the team responsible for the previous Carlton MID spots, ‘Woman Whisperer’ and “Speak Woman”.
CUB General Manager Marketing, Andrew Meldrum, says there isn’t a man in Australia who doesn’t wish they could get more time with their mates.
“But it’s getting tougher these days. Hopefully Australian blokes will appreciate our heroes’ ingenious take on getting a bit more time with their mates,” Meldrum said.
The campaign will launch with 45 and 30 second spots, with additional 15 second spots to come later in the year. A Carlton MID branded website will also go live this week .
