Agency: Exedra / Chick Smith Trott
The Silver Spoon Company is relaunching Crusha milkshake, showcasing its ‘No Added Sugar’ range with a new TV instalment of the hugely successful Crusha Kittens advertising campaign.
Exedra, the creative brand consultancy, has produced the ad in a creative collaboration with the advertising agency Chick Smith Trott (CST) and sought to further differentiate Crusha from its nearest rival Nesquick by reflecting the fun anarchy of a child’s world.
The commercial takes place in a school gym and sees the anarchic Crusha Kittens exercising to a Euro re-mix of the original Crusha song.
Kittens lift weights, punch boxing bags and bounce on trampolines while giant Crusha bottles descend from the sky, squashing cows and proving that Crusha really is “tough enough, to make milk shake”.
Silver Spoon challenged Exedra to produce a commercial that could inspire an audience beyond paid for media and to showcase Errol the “brand icon” for Crusha.
Marketing Director of Silver Spoon, Tony Lucas, said, “Exedra and CST have risen to the challenge once again to create something that is genuinely different, very entertaining and highly campaign able.”
Ben Kingsmill, Managing Director of Exedra, added, “With this latest campaign we have really pushed the boundaries of advertising to kids and created a commercial that will really resonate with our target.
“ The ad is purposefully mischievous, naughty and punky and smashes the cosy normality of kids advertising. We’ve already seen Crusha ads receive over 50,000 hits on YouTube and this next creative is certain to continue that success. We love it and I’m sure kids will too.”
Animation has been created by Joel Veitch, the award-wining animator of rathergood.com and the ad was been written and art directed by Anna Goodyear and Elaine Jones at CST.
