Smith’s has kicked off the launch of its new brand positioning ‘You can’t resist the call of Smith’s’ with an epic ad directed by FINCH’s Alex Roberts via Clemenger BBDO, Sydney.

 

When two mates go out for a leisurely hike in the Australian bush, they inexplicably encounter a grizzly bear; it’s do or die. Fight or flight. Get munching or get munched.

With bear-ly any time to spare, an ingenious plan is instantly hatched. Use the magnetic crunch of Smith’s chips to summon help.

Says Darren Wright, ECD, Clemenger BDDO: “Smith’s is one of Australia’s most loved brands, we wanted the new brand platform to celebrate that in a launch film filled with fun and levity. ‘You can’t resist the call of Smith’s’ brings to life the irresistibility of Smith’s chips in the most epic and joyful way we could.”

Says Alessia Taddei, senior marketing manager of Smith’s: “We’re excited to launch this new brand platform and we couldn’t resist saying yes to the playful, engaging nature of the spot. It really captures just how irresistible Smith’s chips are in bringing Aussies together.”
