A simple brand platform and a rather crafty commercial to launch it.
‘We Prep. You Cook’
The brand platform was launched with a beautifully crafted commercial showcasing the key steps of making the product through a series of unusual characters and whimsical worlds. From potato beautifiers and a Topiarist, to an eccentric chip cutter and a mountaineer reminiscent of Edmund Hilary in the Arctic, each were chosen for their unique skillset, and pictured in an equally unique environment.
The team created six, movie-like sets for each of the characters. They all featured 7m by 3m hanging backdrops that were propped out mid ground with working mechanical sets. This created depth within the dioramas and gave each scene an added level of craft and quality. The music was also composed with the same care; layering sounds to create a rhythmic soundscape, marching the piece to life. One ton of dirt and 320 potatoes were used to create the finished product.
All a bit of fun really - but it worked.
