McCann London Serves A Loving Slice of Mr Kipling Cake
This commercial features a young boy who, at a family gathering, is scurrying around trying to nab a Mr Kipling cake. This “little thief” fails time and time again until, finally, he manages to sneak out with a Mr Kipling Angel Slice. When the boy gets home, he suspiciously rushes upstairs to scoff the sweet treat. Or does he? This “Exceedingly Good Cake” may just turn out to be an exceedingly loving gesture for his grumpy, teen sister.
Part of a campaign from McCann London, this slice-of-life spot gives a new meaning to Mr Kipling’s “Exceedingly Good Cakes” slogan.
Laurence Thomson, co-president and chief creative officer, McCann London, said: “It gives the brand’s heritage a fresh twist and for the first time highlights the many different possible interpretations of the ‘good’ in its ‘Exceedingly Good’ mantra. Looking forward to what comes next.”
Si&Ad of Academy directed this “Exceedingly Good” spot which is running on U.K. TV and online.
