GREY GOOSEÂ® Vodka Kicks Off Summer With New Consumer Engagement Campaign Anchored in Social Networking Hub
CORAL GABLES, Fla., May 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — GREY GOOSEÃ‚® Vodka has unveiled a new 30 second TV advertisement titled “Reunion” (www.facebook.com/GREYGOOSE) as part of its summer consumer engagement campaign. The spot began airing March 16 and will run in primetime on national cable networks throughout the summer. It is supported by a comprehensive media, digital and public relations campaign that represents a doubling in marketing spend from the same time period last year.
Since its creation, GREY GOOSE has been synonymous with celebration and enjoying life to the fullest, whether it’s for a night out or entertaining at home, and the spot conveys the emotional connection of these moments. “Reunion” begins with a toast to “It’s been too long,” communicating the importance of people getting together, to reconnect with friends and to celebrate with those who matter most.
“Reunion” was shot in the signature GREY GOOSE black and white cinematography and set against the musical backdrop of an iconic song that evokes the emotional bond felt when friends reunite. The featured song is from a legendary classic rock band and was a number one hit in the United States and featured as one of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” in a 2010 list published in Rolling Stone magazine.
“People want the best, whether it be a special night out or a memorable, summer gathering and GREY GOOSE is a great part of these moments. For this reason, we are focusing all of our energy into helping people create their best summer yet,” said Shane M. Graber, vice president and managing director, GREY GOOSE Vodka.
The spot, which features the entire line of GREY GOOSE vodka and Flavored Vodkas including GREY GOOSE Original, GREY GOOSE La Poire, GREY GOOSE L’Orange and GREY GOOSE Le Citron, will drive consumers to the GREY GOOSE “Celebrate the Best of Summer” hub on Facebook (www.facebook.com/GREYGOOSE) where fans will have access to information about GREY GOOSE Summer Soiree(TM) events and have the ability to view and share their own GREY GOOSE cocktail recipes and receive home-entertaining tips for summer and more.
GREY GOOSE expects to command the leading share of voice in the vodka category during the summer with this campaign.
