has created a new campaign that no one will see, to launch a new drinks brand
that no one has ever heard of.
HUN wine is 'great wine in a can'. And it’s launching at the worst possible time. Ever. Or so you might think.
The agency’s chief creative officer Andy Jex is staunchly defending its idea for investing in out-of-home media when everyone is, well, at home.
He said: "Even at the best of times launching a new product is tough. But launching a sociable wine brand in the midst of a global lockdown, when no one's allowed out, could just be the worst timing ever...or is it?".
The campaign was devised and media was bought after the country had gone into lockdown. The out-of-home work includes copy lines such as: “Look everybody! We’ve just launched a new wine. Anybody? Anybody? Anybody?”.
To support these executions there will be social media activity poking fun of the fact that the brand is launching at the worst time ever.
Mark Woollard, HUN co-founder, says: “We’ve spent the last eight months gearing up towards what we hoped was going to be one of the best brand launches ever in summer 2020. We faced the fact that it's actually going to be the worst brand launch ever and TBWA supported our vision to be the best, worst product launch ever seen”.
What kind of brand would have the bottle to launch at such an unsociable time? HUN wine would.
