Last year, Johnsonville created a limited run of t-shirts using a member’s (employee named Shawn) tagline, “You Can’t Spell SaUSAge Without ‘USA’” written across the chest. The shirts were a huge hit on the brand’s social channels, garnering a surprising level of positive sentiment.

This led agency Droga5 NT to the insight that consumers might be compelled to hear the story of Johnsonville’s All American origins and that the “Made in the USA” claim not only built trust and quality associations, but improved purchase intent as well. This insight led to a simple campaign premise: this summer, let’s remind America that “Johnsonville brats are made in the U.S.A.!”

So for the third installment of the “Made the Johnsonville Way” campaign, Johnsonville once again turned to its employees for the commercial ideas. This time around, four-year Johnsonville employee, Tammy, had her all-American commercial dream come true. After all, you can’t spell SaUSAge without U-S-A!

Tammy’s “Made in the USA” spot combines two of her favorite things: musicals and America. It all starts with a little girl innocently asking her mother where Johnsonville brats are made. Her mother, with the help of a town full of people, answer the girl in the most over-the-top Broadway-esque fashion. 

This campaign launch spot was directed by Adam and Dave of production house Arts & Sciences. Second Child was production company on the Tammy interview portion of the spot.
