Campaign weekly wrap

A focus on men’s mental health, a twist on the old summer barbeque and local travel, this is what happened this week in campaigns.

‘Boys Do Cry’ campaign for men’s mental health

 

A nationwide campaign launched this week that challenges social views about braveness in men. Created by The Hallway, the campaign reimagines The Cure’s track ‘Boys Don’t Cry.’

Partnering with The University of Melbourne’s Centre of Mental Health foundation Gotcha4Life, the campaign rewrites the song to be ‘Boys Do Cry’. The transformation of the song aims to encourage men to challenge traditional masculine stereotypes. Check in with mates, reach out to those around you.

BOYS DO CRY is anticipated to be one of the most significant men’s mental health campaigns Australia has seen. The release will include a comprehensive campaign of videos, posters, outdoor advertising, radio ads and a campaign website, developed by The Hallway.

VB cooks up something special

 

After many of us spent a winter indoors, we’re more excited than ever to be back outside. Victoria Bitter has given us even more of a reason to fire up the BBQ. 

Teaming up with Weber, the iconic beer brand has released a VB branded grill. Donned in the signature green VB colour, the 57cm grill is based off one of Weber’s most popular sellers.

Victoria Bitter’s marketing director, Hayden Turner says, “We are excited to partner with another cult brand like Weber, which has a significant presence around the globe. Weber and VB hope this new product brings people together this Summer to enjoy that money can’t buy knock-off feeling. Weber fans are just as passionate as our fans, which is why we can’t wait to see their reactions to this new product.”
