Home is where the Speight's is

It's that time of year again: Sausages are consumed voraciously, jandal-adorned feet almost instantly become sunburned, refreshing beverages are sought and summer advertising campaigns are released. And, following on from the man-heavy launch spot for the new Ranfurly Frontier lager a few weeks back, Lion Nathan and Publicis Mojo have also entered the masculine mainstream beer fray with a new number for Speight's, which documents a rather urban Southern Man's domestic journey to dish out a few cold Gold Medal Ales to the boys.

The 'It's good to be Home' spot (check out the steely, determined gaze and magical fire-making fingers of the lead-man) is part of the 'Pride of Your Castle' campaign, which kicked off with the TVC and continues on-pack, offering Kiwi men the opportunity to win that most sought after of prizes, a pimped out personalised BBQ along with other meat-charring accoutrements.

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
