Kellogg’s NZ commercial director Will Brockbank responds to recent criticisms from FABIK’s Angela Barnett about the company’s motives behind its new ‘Own it’ campaign, saying the most important aspect of the campaign is that the “disconnect” from women has been recognised and changed.
Kellogg’s has launched a new campaign via Pead PR, Mindshare and JWT social for its Special K brand dubbed ‘Own it’, in partnership with Women’s Health Action, which celebrates women and encourages them to embrace their bodies, whatever the size, shape or form and celebrate their inner strength. The initiative is being pushed out through social media using some Kiwi role models to help get the message across. PLUS: while the message for women to embrace their bodies is good, is it going to be taken seriously when the Special K brand was built around the idea dieting and losing weight? FABIK’s Angela Barnett shares her view.
There’s nothing better than a graph that shows complex information simply, except perhaps for a montage that shows the passage of time quickly. And, like Forrest Gump, Team America, Rocky IV and many other movies before it, Kellogg’s and JWT have embraced that classic filmic technique with a spot that aims encourage people to take the All-Bran 7 Day Challenge.
