Leo Burnett Celebrates 40 Years in the UK for McDonald’s

Today Leo Burnett’s London office launched a new campaign celebrating the 40th anniversary of McDonald’s arrival in the UK.

The campaign aims to portray the important moments in people’s lives…that just happened to occur at McDonald’s. In “Just Moved In,” (featured above) the most realistic of these scenarios, a family moves in to a new house. After a hard day of moving, they realize there’s nothing in the fridge to make for dinner and head to McDonald’s for a quick meal (which is just fine with the kids).

Other spots in the campaign feature an awkward first date, a rescue meal for a rainy camping trip, and a teen celebrating passing his driver’s test. Leo Burnett doesn’t overreach with the scenarios, instead choosing small moments that compliment larger ones — although the idea of taking a date to McDonald’s does seem a bit of stretch, no matter how young you are.

The broadcast spots are supported by an outdoor campaign “comprised of eight executions which also reminds people that McDonald’s has been there in the background of a myriad of moments all through their lives.” Read more

Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut is Too Good to Resist in New Leo Spot

If you have nightmares about snakes (as I often do), be prepared to close your eyes when the “Red Riddler” leaps out of the cupboard in this Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut spot from Leo Burnett London.

The 30-second TV ad brings the brand back to one of its traditional taglines: “The trouble is they taste too good.” That’s why the snake somehow jumps up the snake catcher’s shorts; his assistant couldn’t resist the Crunchy Nuts (whose crunchy sound provoked the serpent) on the kitchen counter. The assistant’s excuse, as the snake catcher writhes on the floor? “Sorry mate, they’re nutty.”

In a charming British interpretation, the statement introducing this ad says it appeals to the spontaneous, “ooh, go on then” side in everyone. So next time you’re debating between cooking fish sticks or pouring yourself a bowl of cereal, say “ooh, go on then” in a British accent in your head, and see which meal appeals to you more. If you don’t say Crunchy Nuts, you have no sense of true indulgence.

Credits after the jump.
