Clover’s trippy blue bottle ad campaign – so bad (and bizarre) it’s good
This week, Rice critiqued Clover’s “brand refresh” - its milk bottles are now blue.
The JSE-listed dairy producer says it wants to “inject excitement and generate talk-ability to make fresh milk relevant again.”
Clover tweeted this bizarre video of a blue man with an irritating voice – it’s mindboggling, have a look:
Baffled consumers are scratching their heads – some are reacting with horror.
Ad agencies really aren't coping with working from home. https://t.co/APdZBlW0uc— Phlynt Phlossy ©®™ (@PhilChard) July 4, 2020
Nevertheless, Rice gave it a “hero” rating, with a minority of social media users seeing the genius behind the trippy campaign.
