McD's pumps up the patriotism for 'Just Because' push

Youtube Video

Youtube Video Whether it's banks, bacon, lamb, insurance or telcos, there's no shortage of brands trying to tap into the idea of New Zealandness. And McDonald's and DDB have just launched a campaign for two particularly Kiwi products that fits snugly into this jingoistic genre by focusing on idiosyncratic domestic habits.

"To announce the return of a New Zealand favourite, the McDonald's Kiwiburger, and the launch of a soon to be Kiwi favourite we created a couple of ads that hero our unconventional spirit and refusal to stand on ceremony as well as celebrating our innate ability to tinker with things in an effort to make them better."
