CP+B Changes A.1.’s Relationship Status with Steak

As we mentioned in Stir yesterday morning, Kraft has decided to drop the “steak” from A.1.’s title, now calling it A.1. Original Sauce. Now we have an online spot from CP+B to go along with the name change, explaining the nature of A.1.’s evolving relationship with steak.

In CP+B’s “New Friend Requests,” the Boulder-based agency imagines A.1. rethinking its commitment to steak via Facebook. We see posts of the two together, one of which contains the line “It’s just you and me forever.” But then A.1. gets new friend requests, first from pork, then from myriad other foods. This leads to the sauce changing its relationship status with steak to “It’s complicated,” citing a need to “see other foods.” Initially steak doesn’t take too kindly to this, but eventually steak and A.1. reconcile, with the spot ending with the tagline, “For almost everything. Almost.” The idea is about equal parts clever and goofy, but CP+B mostly make it work, although the spot could have benefited from a shortened run time (it clocks in at 2 minutes). Both the name change and the “For almost everything. Almost.” campaign stem from insights into diehard A1 users, who use the sauce on everything from chicken, pork, and fish to vegetables.

The “For almost everything. Almost.” campaign will also include TV spots, which debut Monday, the first from the brand in five years, in addition to digital, social, radio, out of home and in-store activations. Stick around for credits after the jump. Read more

CP+B Appoints Replacement for Hopenwasser

katecpbCrispin Porter + Bogusky didn’t have to look any further than from within to find someone to succeed Chad Hopenwasser, the eight-year agency vet and VP/director of video production who split for the HOP gig at Chiat NY last month. Taking over Hopenwasser’s role now is Kate Hildebrant, who has been with CP+B since 2009 and most recently served served as VP/executive integrated producer. During her time at CP+B, Hildebrant worked on campaigns for clients including  Jell-O, Fruit of the Loom, Microsoft, Kraft, American Express and Bolthouse Farms.

Prior to Crispin, the exec spent four years at DDB, producing efforts for McDonald’s, State Farm, Wrigley and Anheuser-Busch along the way. Early on in her career, Hildebrant spent several years as a producer at Fallon, serving as an assistant producer on BMW Films’ award-winning “The Hire” among other projects.

Kraft Mac & Cheese Theft Warrants a Child’s Revenge

Well, at least Crispin Porter + Bogusky is keeping it real by keeping the VO work of once again-rehabbing Ted Williams intact in this latest round of spots for Kraft Mac & Cheese. This time, the concept is “Noodle Theft” and we here we have “Officer Dan” (though we would’ve preferred this Officer Dan) lecturing some young redhead about stealing. Apparently, a little bogarting of the prepackaged, gooey goodness turns young’uns into the children of the corn. You’ve been warned. Check out the second spot and credits after the jump.
