Beck's veers towards TV for latest ads

07 March, 2008

A new set of ads for Beck's Vier hit TV screens this week during coverage of Champions League football on ITV.

A 30-second ad with the strapline "different by choice" is targeted at 18 to 34-year-old men, and will run on ITV, Channel 4, Five, cable and pub channels in March and April, and again in the summer.

The ad shows a collection of people, places and things which "have achieved success by setting their own rules" - including freeform painters, a human beat box, punks and mini-skirts.

Beck's brand director Vikki Babb said: "The campaign vividly illustrates that Beck's Vier, like its parent brand Beck's, is different by choice - choosing not to compromise its brewing heritage, product credentials and taste.

"Beck's and Beck's Vier have become must-stock brands because of their consistent sales success. They are increasingly popular with consumers, deliver premium profits and will help build business - particularly when dual stocked, as a growing number of retailers are discovering."

Take-home volume sales of Beck's Vier grew 157 per cent in the year to Jan 26, according to Nielsen.

Half an hour later they’re crawling over muddy clods with lacerated hands, drenched in claggy juice and cold sweat, as if ploughing through an endurance race.
