McCain's Latest Campaign Celebrates The Changing Dynamic of Aussie Families

DDB Melbourne's ad features real people instead of actors to better reflect modern Australia

McCain's Latest Campaign Celebrates The Changing Dynamic of Aussie Families

McCain Foods ANZ has released a new campaign via DDB Melbourne.

‘We are Family’ is the first masterbrand campaign for McCain in Australia highlighting the brand’s ethos while retaining the 'Ah McCain, you’ve done it again' tagline. It signals an exciting evolution for McCain with the brand moving from product-based marketing to emotional brand-building.

To better reflect modern Australia, the ad features real people, not actors, including a single mum who is making her way on her own, two dads who’ve adopted siblings from their home countries and a family of five with a stay-at-home mum.

Says Karen Marshall, marketing manager, McCain: “McCain has long supported families coming together, no matter what the budget or time restrictions, with products that make it easy to create a great tasting meal that the whole family will love.

“With the majority of Australians agreeing that brands need to do better to represent modern families in advertising, McCain is proud to reflect the changing dynamics of families in Australia.”

Says Anthony Moss, ECD, DDB Melbourne: “It’s an honour to play our part in creating the first masterbrand campaign in Australia, for a brand as iconic as McCain. While the meaning of family evolves, so too does the imagery used to portray a family need to evolve in our advertising. It’s a credit to McCain to have a desire to reflect these societal changes and we look forward to continuing McCain’s journey into emotional storytelling.”

The campaign localises a successful campaign of the same name that aired in the UK, created by London-based DDB sister agency, Adam&Eve.

It will run from 7 July across all major TV, cinema, social and online.
