W&M delivers message with humour

31 October, 2008

Whyte & Mackay is investing ú1 million in a marketing push for Vladivar that aims to use humour to promote a responsible drinking message.

The company said it has created a series of "spoof adverts" that show what can happen when people drink too much. The first ad features a man and gorilla snuggled together in a zoo cage after a night of binge-drinking.

The strapline Quality Not Quantity will appear in magazines, press and online ads,

outdoor posters

and POS material.

Marketing director Nick Gaskin said: "Past

and existing campaigns have helped raise awareness , but

our research showed

there was a role for humour .

"We are adding a new and different element to support government

and industry

in getting the message across."
