Campaign Spotlight

Campaign Spotlight: Ogilvy’s campaign for Trebor, ‘Give me Strength,’ is a Comic Relief to Everyday (Annoying) Situations

MANILA, PHILIPPINESOgilvy’s campaign for the British confectionery Trebor puts the comic relief in everyday situations that makes us all uncomfortable; whether that gym buddy who gets a little too close in the locker room or that driver who occupies two parking spaces.   
The campaign is a series of 10-seconder video that depicts everyday annoying encounters. Each campaign opens in an uncomfortable situation and a resentful narrator says, ‘Give me strength,’ as if a cue to the giant pack of Trebors that smashes the annoyance out of the screen. The six short films: ‘Catwalk,’ ‘Leg Spreader,’ ‘ Check Out,’ ‘Locker Room Shaver,’ ‘Plate’ and ‘Locker Room Towel’ all pokes humor with the British catchphrase and encourages calling out such instances. 
“It’s exciting to have a fresh, bold campaign in the market, which plays on those moments where you need just that bit more strength to get through. We wanted to tell stories which would make our audience laugh and think of our brand in a different way,” commented Rafael Espesani, Senior Brand Manager, Refreshing & Relief Candy UK & Ireland at Mondelez.
