‘Did Somebody Say Menulog’ tune gets Katy Perry remix in new global campaign via McCann London

| | No Comments

Australian-born food delivery brand Menulog is delivering joy once more, by enlisting pop sensation Katy Perry to take on the reins of the brand’s iconic ‘Did Somebody Say’ platform, created by McCann London.


The brand platform, which will launch tonight Wednesday June 9, in Australia during Channel Nine’s State of Origin coverage, celebrates the excitement and anticipation that’s universally felt when the idea of ordering food is suggested, and encapsulates Menulog’s dedication to supplying delicious food to satisfy your every craving.

The TVC sees a Menulog delivery courier arriving at Katy’s home, a fantastical supersized dolls house. As the courier hands over her food we cut inside and go on a whistle stop tour of Katy’s world, complete with elaborate costumes, piano playing puppets, and a wide range of fabulous food for every occasion.

The carefully crafted lyrics showcase the range of cuisines and dishes available on Menulog mirroring the rise in demand for food delivery in non-traditional takeaway moments such as breakfast, lunch and mid-week.

In addition to the TVC, the brand platform comprises a refreshed visual identity, updated tone of voice, and will be activated through a media strategy created by UM aimed at winning screens, hearts and streets across Just Eat Takeaway.com’s key markets.

Did Somebody Say Feat. Snoop Dogg secured Just Eat Takeaway.com’s distinctive mnemonic a place in everyday language and achieved a number of industry accolades including being voted the #1 most effective brand sonic by Mark Ritson. The latest instalment builds on the huge success and introduces the concept to more markets.

Says Simon Cheng, marketing director at Menulog: “We really were blown away by the success of Did Somebody Say Feat. Snoop Dogg. It put the Menulog brand firmly on the cultural map, anchored the message that Menulog is the answer to all food cravings, and connected us with audiences, building brand love and consideration in a fiercely competitive sector.

“While we’re launching with a blockbuster TVC, this is a global creative brand platform running across 19 markets in 20 languages, and underpinned by a comprehensive through-the-line activation strategy.

“Katy Perry brings unparalleled star power and her playful nature matches ours to a tee. It’s the perfect partnership to continue building the instinctive connection between Menulog and the joy of food delivery.”

Directed by iconic music video veteran Dave Meyers, who previously created videos for Perry’s global hits Swish Swish and Firework, the film has an authentic and playful Katy Perry feel, introducing her own vibrant and quirky feast of style.

Music and lyrics were co-created by Katy Perry, Kris Pooley, McCann London and the team responsible for the original Did Somebody Say Feat. Snoop Dogg track. The campaign was written and art-directed by Ben Buswell and Jo Griffin and shot in LA with production company Radical Media, with photography by Vijat Mohindra.

Says Katy Perry: “Working with Menulog was a really fun and natural experience. Coincidentally most of my records and eras have had food undertones to them, from strawberries, to peppermints to now mushrooms. Ordering takeaway is a regular Saturday night for me, so it was fun to channel that into a video that is a combination of the things that bring joy to my life: poppy bright colours, wild outfits, and food puns sung over a catchy tune.”

Says Rob Webster and Alexei Berwitz, creative directors at McCann London: “Marrying the worlds of Just Eat Takeaway.com and Katy Perry has been an absolute delight. With Katy’s global appeal we’re bringing the ‘Did Somebody Say’ platform to more markets than ever before, while her supercharged remix builds on the success of the last campaign to land another little slice of pop culture.”

The new global campaign, with a 60” hero TVC, will run across TV, Social and Earned.
