Ogilvy & Mather London unlocks the love for Hellmann's in new global campaign

30 March, 2015

LONDON — Ogilvy & Mather London’s new global campaign for Hellmann’s sees the brand highlighting and responding to the wonderful things their fans say in social media around the world.

As the world’s best-selling mayonnaise, there’s no shortage of love for the brand out there. And creative responses from Hellmann’s will appear in multiple media across multiple markets.

The campaign launches with a brand-led TVC responding to a Facebook comment in which Hellmann’s is described as “one of the greatest things ever created”. Which begs the question: is it?

This launch spot airs in the US from 23 March, and in the UK from 1 April, with further global launches planned throughout 2015. Activity is planned to run across TV, Cinema, Online and in Social Media throughout the campaign.

This is Hellmann’s biggest investment in over decade and the start of an ongoing strategy to create a unified global voice for this iconic brand.

Dede Laurentino, Global Executive Creative Director for Unilever at Ogilvy & Mather, commented: "The amazing things people say about Hellmann's match the very heart of the brand: it's real, fun and inspiring. Like Hellmann's, this idea is social by design”.

Julian Nichols, Senior Global Brand Director for Hellmann’s at Unilever, commented: “It’s humbling to see the many amazing things that people all over the world say about Hellmann’s. Sharing the love people express in a humble and playful way is at the heart of our new global campaign idea and we are excited to watch it develop”.

The production company was Field Trip/1st Avenue Machine.
