O’Keeffe’s – national TV campaign

O'Keeffe's

O’Keeffe’s Working Hands is America’s bestselling hand cream. Naturally, being quite good at this moisturising game, they expanded their range. Creams, balms and lotions for the whole body – smoothness from head to toe.

Sister-brand to Gorilla Glue, O’Keeffe’s has grown its market share in the UK just as impressively as its adhesive big brother. I like to think my scripts for this TV campaign have helped play some part.

Pork Farms – Competition TV ad

Pork Farms

For the follow-up to the national TV campaign, and continuing with the ‘You know where you are…’ strategy, Pork Farms decided to run a competition. To win a brand new motorhome (and other assorted ‘outdoor’ prizes), no less.

TV again was the medium of choice, backed up with a hefty on-pack promotion, so I got busy writing scripts.

The end result – this family holiday-themed ad, of which there are two versions here. With a steady recipe of humour and charm, the ads were designed to appeal to a younger audience as well as the heritage values of the more traditional customer.

Gorilla Glue range – 10″ TV ads

Gorilla Glue

As well as editing and rewriting two 30″ US ads into 20″ versions for our screens, I also got to write a bunch of 10″ ads for Gorilla Glue from scratch. These were enjoyable, not only because I was able to offer a few visual suggestions this time, but also because of the extreme time constraints. The challenge of getting the main product benefits across in just a handful of seconds was fun to meet. I went down the route of snappy, rhythmical and memorable voice overs.

Gorilla Glue – talkSPORT radio ads

Gorilla Glue

In March 2016 I helped Gorilla reinforce their position with two radio ads on talkSPORT. Running for a month, these ads continued with the theme of gently mocking “our American cousins.” This time by featuring a ‘soccer’ commentator getting his terminology hopelessly wrong.

Gorilla Grab Adhesive / Gorilla Super Glue – TV ads

Gorilla Glue

Gorilla really started flexing its muscles in 2016 with a £4M marketing spend. A big chunk of which went on TV airtime on the likes of ITV, Channel 5, Sky Sports and Dave. So, my task, once again, was to edit and repurpose the existing US ad footage into 20″ ads and write suitable voice overs. Two main products were pushed this year –  Heavy Duty Grab Adhesive and Super Glue Brush & Nozzle.

Pork Farms – TV campaign

Pork Farms

I was part of the team behind creating and developing this national TV campaign. The backdrop – popular and iconic British locations to help illustrate that these are the nation’s favourite pork pies. Or in other words, ‘You know where you are with a Pork Farms pork pie’. The ads ran on all the main channels and were complemented with various events and PR.

The year after, I also wrote the follow-up TV ad featuring a competition and on-pack promotion to win a brand new motorhome.
