"You look like a beer man!" Hunter's Premium Cider Refreshes the Rules with a new brand campaign

Not too long ago, life was predictable and becoming an adult included laid out basic steps - finish school, study further, and then find a 9 to 5 job. However, nowadays, people think differently about their futures and what shapes their world. By taking control of their destiny, hustling on the side, they can achieve great things.
"You look like a beer man!" Hunter's Premium Cider Refreshes the Rules with a new brand campaign

The latest TVC, created by Grey/WPP Liquid for Hunter's, portrays how the contemporary young South African man doesn't let the rules hold him back because sometimes the rules need refreshment. He defies the rules of a film set and takes control, changing his environment and thus the script to showcase and bring his personality and objectives to life. Sometimes challenging the current situation is liberating and leads to refreshing the rules.

"You look like a beer man!" Hunter's Premium Cider Refreshes the Rules with a new brand campaign

"You look like a beer man!" Hunter's Premium Cider Refreshes the Rules with a new brand campaign

“To launch the new proposition, 'Refresh the Rules', we needed to think of an ad that conveyed this sentiment simply and in the most entertaining way. After a few rounds of thoughts and ideas, we landed on something that, in hindsight, feels almost effortless: A script … or the idea of flipping it, literally, instead. 'Flipping the script' is a term that has become synonymous with doing unexpected things or challenging the status quo. That is precisely what our protagonist does when he is confronted by a prescriptive world holding him back from being himself”, says Marcus Moshapalo, Creative Director of Grey Advertising Africa. Today's young adults have a particular know-how, which allows them to see things differently from societal norms. Hunter’s is set to celebrate originality in all its shapes and sizes.
