Lindauer celebrates Girls' Night Out with Boys' Night In

The various 'Look At These People Having More Fun Than You at Fancy Events' sections in the nation's magazines and newspapers have a powerful pull on the often judgemental, fame seeking human animal. So, in a continuation of Lindauer and DDB's 'Don't Worry Boys'—and in a continuation of its vow to never show the target market—it got tactical by "hijacking" The Sunday Star Times' ‘About Town’ section (or in this case the 'Around Town' section) and showed all the gormless, despondent male partners who were left at home to do ironing, eat pizza, pat cats on stairs and watch TV with men friends on Lindauer's National Girls’ Night Out last week. 

Little did the girls know that StopPress saw all of these men at Showgirls later that night.  

And in another girl power stunt, the brand also gave female revellers an opportunity to throw men off their scent on the night by giving them the Lindauer numberto hand out. 

"We know there’s been a time you’ve given out a fake number to throw off unwanted attention on a Girls’ Night Out. How about tonight, instead of the false digits, give out The Lindauer Number 027 703 4598 and we’ll look after the boys for you." 

The voice message asks to send a text and, after legal approvals have been given, screengrabs of the messages will be posted on Facebook (with blurred out number and names).

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.
