BBDO and Lowe’s Respond to Your March Madness Twitter Jokes

Ever feel like your tweets are answers to questions that no one asked? Are they trees falling in a forest so remote that no one even knows whether they existed (much less whether or not they made a sound)?

Red Stripe Celebrates Small Victories

Your average beer commercial tends to be a bit oversaturated. Whether Budweiser Clydesdales are clomping through the snow or Coors Light mountains are changing colors, big beer brands love their drama and growly-voiced narrators. Red Stripe, however, sets themselves apart by appreciating the little things in life.

In its latest campaign from BBDO NY, the Jamaican beer brand celebrates finding five dollars in your pocket, successfully evading embarrassing office party moments, and using a big word in a business presentation. All the appreciation comes in the form of a reggae band, crooning lyrics like, “Ooh, look at you/using a big word in an office meeting, all correctly and stuff.”

Their end slogan is simply, “Hooray Beer!” Hard to argue with that. Just as much as everyone loves throwing out sweet vocab words and finding money, beer is a simple pleasure worth celebrating. Credits after the jump.
