The all-natural, innovative French soup brand Les Recettes Ferme d’Anchin is launching its first campaign, “The Soup that Honors Vegetables”, with the help of CLM BBDO.
Les Recettes Ferme d’Anchin loves vegetables, and respects them. Respects them so much that they’ll do everything possible to honor them in their soups.
Why? Because even today, far too often, vegetables are frequently mishandled and poorly cooked. Not to mention the reputation they have – just think of the expressions: “you’re full of beans!”, “couch potato” “be in a pickle”… What’s wrong with being full of beans? Vegetables deserve better.. and that’s why CLM BBDO created a campaign that gives them the respect they deserve.
The Recettes Ferme d’Anchin is the brand that celebrates vegetables in all their forms
The campaign, which showcases vegetables in all their glory, consists of 2 films, outdoor posters (in partnership with retailer Monoprix), and an activation.
The offbeat digital films, directed by Béatrice Pégard of the ultra-creative production company La Pac introduce us to 2 characters, Louise Asperge (Louise Asparagus) and Samuel Poireau (Samuel Leek). These guys have had to put up with all kinds of taunting since childhood but now, thanks to Recettes Ferme d’Anchin, they can finally appreciate and celebrate their distinctive names.
To take things a step further, the brand is running an operation where anyone with a vegetable in their name has the chance of winning Les Recettes Ferme d’Anchin soup - they just need to comment on the videos online to enter.
And, in an online activation, BBDO & La Ferme d’Anchin sought out influencers who’ve willingly chosen vegetable-related handles - @emiliechoufleurlajolie (emilie cauliflower la jolie), @pititchampignon (little mushroom), @fraiseetbasilic (strawberry and basil), giving them a wood box with 2 Les Recettes Ferme d’Anchin soups, and a personalized bowl. A way of reminding everyone they should be proud to bear the name of a vegetable.

Premium Rum brand Bacardi recently debuted "The Angel's Share," a digital short film co-directed by actor and filmmaker Michael B. Jordan and Emmy-nominated director Paul Hunter, according to a news release provided to Marketing Dive. The content is the first to promote Bacardi's premium collection, which launched in April. The film tells the story of the legacy of Bacardi, centering on "the angel's share," which refers to the liquid that evaporates during the rum's aging process, and how because Bacardi premium rum is aged under the Caribbean sun, more angel's share is lost than for other spirits. The film, which Jordan and Hunter conceptualized, follows three characters, including a Maestro de Ron, a bartender and Bacardi family member, to tell their version of the angel's share story. The campaign, developed with BBDO New York, will run on digital channels and target connected TV, YouTube and full-episode players. It will also include out-of-home in markets including New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington and Atlanta. In addition, social vignettes will air on Bacardi-owned channels and Jordan's Instagram page.

In partnership with its creative agency of record, Red Tettemer O’Connell + Partners, Philly-based premium meats and cheese manufacturer Dietz & Watson has launched a new set of holiday ads featuring real-life couple Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick. The ads mark the latest iteration of the brand’s “It’s a Family Thing” campaign, which launched earlier this year.
“Ham for the Holidays” shows Brooklyn snapping a picture of her perfect holiday ham, while “Say Cheese” shows the beloved model and actress preparing a meat and cheese plate. In both spots, she almost knocks the food onto the floor. Luckily, Andy cheekily catches the snacks with his tennis racket in a fun callback to his profession. In addition to “Say Cheese” and “Ham for the Holidays,” the campaign consists of two other 15-second spots that launched on social and digital back in November, which kicked off the holiday-centric creative, and one :30-second TV spot which will run throughout November and December.
A social initiative called Ham-O-Gram also accompanies the spots. Knowing that everyone, Brooklyn included, loves a ham at the holidays, Dietz & Watson has asked its social followers to offer up peoples who might enjoy receiving one. Then, each Friday, three recipients get picked to receive one.
“It’s a Family Thing” – RTO+P’s first national brand campaign for Dietz & Watson – first launched back in May with a series of playful TV spots featuring Brooklyn and Andy in relatable couple situations, like devouring a meat cheese plate during a game night for two and creating the perfection sandwich.

On December 3, McDonald’s is putting a unique spin on a classic internet icon – the Hamburger Menu – in honor of its inventor, Norm Cox.
In the 1980s, Norm Cox changed the Internet forever by simplifying the dropdown menu on websites to create what is now known as the “Hamburger Menu.” As fellow burger lovers, McDonald’s is inviting fans to celebrate Norm’s Hamburger Menu on his birthday, December 3, through a creative activation that will make Internet history.

Snooburglar is the perfect way for McDonald’s to incorporate Hamburglar’s burger-loving legacy and makes them the third brand that Reddit has ever allowed to ‘decorate’ Snoo.
On December 3, the adorable Snooburglar will show Redditors and burger fans alike how to get a hamburger through the Internet’s ‘Hamburger Menu’ for the first time ever. Content abouthow McDonald’s is changing up the hamburger menu in honor of Norm’s birthday will appear on Reddit and McDonald’s social media channels. Watch the launch video here. Also, Redditors can ask the one and only Norm Cox questions in an “Ask Me Anything” session hosted by McDonald’s at 2 p.m./CT on December 3.
Also, McDonald’s is celebrating Norm by making even more internet history and letting you get a burger through a Hamburger Menu. For one day only, fans can redeem deals on the McDonald’s app by clicking on the Hamburger Menu featured on the mobile versions of Reddit.com and McDonalds.com.

Building on the success of its Christmas campaign last year, McDonald’s is getting #ReindeerReadyagain.
Created by Leo Burnett London, the activity aims to build brand affinity for McDonald’s during the chaotic Christmas period and increase visits.
The agency has created a film that depicts Father Christmas and his reindeer as they journey around the UK on Christmas Eve. While he receives an abundance of mince pies, people seem to have forgotten to put anything out for the reindeer. Theysoldier on as best they can on their biggest night of the year but eventually the lack of carrots catches up with them and they come to a bumpy landing . Fortunately, Father Christmas spots one of the McDonald’s restaurants, and rushes towards it to stock up on carrots for his reindeer.
With media planning and buying by OMD UK, the film will run on TV, cinema, VOD and social. In a media first, the campaign will launch with an advertising premier, with a broadcaster integrated partnership across ITV, Channel 4 and Sky. Following initial teaser idents, the full 90-second commercial launches on 18th November. Also in 60-second, 40-second, and 30-second cut down versions, the campaign will run for six weeks.
McDonald’s, which has rebranded its carrot bags asReindeer Treats to fit with the theme of the campaign, has also created a magical digital experience on Snapchat, ‘through a lens-based’ game that transforms the player’s face into a reindeer and prompts them to catch as many falling carrots as possible. The number of carrots caught can then be used as fuel for Father Christmas’reindeer, determining how fast they fly through the sky. Snapchat filters are available for customers visiting McDonald’s restaurants.
The #ReindeerReady website will host exciting competitions, including a Christmas jumper giveaway and an animated e-book for parents and children to read together in the lead up to Christmas. McDonald’s are also bringing families an extra piece of magic on Christmas Day itself with the return of Reindeer Ready Live, an augmented reality tool which allows parents to capture the magical moment a reindeer enters their home at Christmas to share with their children.
Chaka Sobhani, CCO at Leo Burnett London said:“After last year, we wanted to build even more fun ways to help get the country Reindeer Ready. With a unique and playful Snapchat lens and filters, an exclusive reindeer e-book, Christmas jumper giveaways, Festive branded carrots and the magical story of Father Christmas and his Reindeer, we hope this year’s McDonald’s campaign warms the hearts of the nation and captures a bit of the magical anticipation of Christmas.”
Ben Fox, Marketing Director for Brand Experience and Media at McDonald’s, said: “Our Reindeer Ready campaign aims to deliver a little magic for everyone this Christmas.”
In addition to the brand activity, Leo Burnett has created a campaign to support the McDonald’s promotional food and drink items this Christmas including the launch of the new Chicken Big Tasty and the Millionaire’s Latte for McCafé, featuring the limited edition festive cups. This activity runs across a variety of channels including OOH, press and digital.
