The new campaign created in partnership with Zambezi, spans television, outdoor, radio, digital and social media and is Traeger’s most significant campaign investment to date. This comes as Traeger has rapidly risen to become the category leader in wood pellet grills, with the category earning approximately 20 percent of all U.S. grill sales in 2020.

The centerpiece of Traeger Grills’ “Welcome to the Traegerhood” campaign from ad agency Zambezi is this TV spot titled “Pied Piper” directed by Tim Kendall of FIN Studios. 

The :60 depicts a lone Traeger Wood-Fired Grill that falls off the back of a moving trailer and rolls across the country, pulling in an ever-growing crowd in its wake. Set to the classic song “Pied Piper” by Crispian St. Peters, the upbeat narrative invites everyone to join the supportive, fun, and flavorful community that is The Traegerhood.
