Seen+Noted: Magnum and LOLA MullenLowe say Stick to the Original via humorous new spot

| | 1 Comment

Magnum ice cream has launched a new campaign via LOLA MullenLowe Madrid that addresses its copycats with humour and encourages people to ‘Stick to the Original.’


As consumers began referring to Magnum imitations as ‘Magnum-like’ ice creams, the brand saw an opportunity to showcase why only Magnum is “like Magnum”.

The film tells the story of a woman who discovers that her partner has been buying fake Magnum ice creams all along. And from there, everything falls apart.

Tomás Ostiglia, Executive Creative Director, LOLA MullenLowe Madrid, said: “With this campaign, we aimed to demonstrate not only that a category referent can address new brands with elegance but also that a brand like Magnum can communicate with humour, if done with good taste.”

Benjamin Curtis, VP, Magnum London, said: “At Magnum, we work really hard to make the highest quality, indulgent ice cream products, and we wanted to find a fresh way to tell our audience why it’s worth it for them to ‘stick to the original.’ LOLA Mullenlowe came up with a brilliant and funny way to dramatize our commitment to delivering true superior pleasure every time.”
