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.
