Rothco Delivers New Campaign for Kerry Foods’s Strings & Things

Rothco | Accenture Interactive has created a new campaign for Strings & Things, the Kerry Foods-owned master-brand which includes the popular range of Cheese Strings and  other shaped cheese products for the children’s market.

Directed by Greg Barth at BlinkInk, the two playful TVCs and radio content cement the new brand name of Europe’s most popular cheese in string form. The campaign which has an estimated spend of €3m  will run across TV, radio and social

According to Sarah Murphy, Account Director at Rothco: “Cheestrings, Europe’s most beloved cheese in stringed form, was joining a band. No longer merely a solo artist, the strings were being joined by a variety of other things to form a range under the moniker ‘Strings & Things’. To make sure people remembered this, we created a bizarrely memorable campaign that allowed us to say the new brand name a kajillion times. In addition to this super catchy brand film, listen out for one second ‘Strings & Things’ radio ads. Blink your ears and you could easily miss them.”
