Bundaberg launches Lazy Bear brand extension
Diageo Australia has launched a new TVC and through-the-line campaign promoting Bundaberg Rum’s newest pre-mixed beverage, Lazy Bear.
In response to more casual daytime drinking occasions, Leo Burnett Sydney and Diageo have launched the product name and campaign for Lazy Bear, the new pre-mixed drink in the Bundaberg Rum range.
The TVC features five mates enjoying a lazy afternoon by the beach in hammocks, swinging in arcs like a Newton’s cradle to fetch fresh bottles of the drink.
Combining Bundaberg rum with dry ginger ale and lime, the mid-strength drink aims to reposition rum into a new, more casual drinking occasion.
Viewers are also encouraged to keep an eye out for the iconic Bundaberg mascot Bundy R Bear, who makes cameo appearances across seven different versions of the ad.
The campaign, directed by Steve Rogers, Revolver, will also run across cinema, outdoor, digital and social and was launched to coincide with the NRL preliminary finals.
“Bundaberg Rum Lazy Bear is our biggest pre-mix launch in years,” says Jodi McLeod, marketing manager, Bundaberg Rum.
“We’re excited to be launching a campaign that brings to life lazy time with our signature humour and reintroduces Bundy R. Bear to surprise and delight everyone who’s been missing him from our screens,” says McLeod.
