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.

Gorilla Glue – TV, press & trade

Gorilla Glue

Already the best-selling glue in America, Gorilla Glue was looking to get its big, hairy foot in the door of the UK market. My task was to take selected parts of the existing US TV ad and give the scripts a British twist. In other words, rewrite them to resonate with White Van Man. There was also a tabloid press ad and all kinds of trade material. (More details here.)
