New GREY GOOSEÂ® Vodka Social Responsibility Campaign Encourages Consumers to Drink Responsibly This Memorial Day Weekend
CORAL GABLES, Fla., May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — In anticipation of Memorial Day Weekend, GREY GOOSEÃ‚® Vodka is launching a national television commercial today titled “Strengths” to stress the importance of responsible drinking. This new commercial is part of the brand’s summer consumer engagement campaign and comes on the heels of its new 30 second TV advertisement titled “Reunion.” “Strengths” will run in primetime on national cable networks and also appear on leading social media sites including Facebook and YouTube.
The commercial features an innovative, animated copy treatment that brings to life a simple, yet powerful responsibility message – the importance of knowing one’s strengths and limits, and understanding that they are one in the same.
“We encourage consumers to make the most of this holiday weekend by taking the time to reconnect with family and friends,” said Shane M. Graber, vice president and managing director, GREY GOOSE Vodka. “Consumers of GREY GOOSE appreciate the care and attention we put into crafting the World’s Best Tasting Vodka and they understand that quality and responsibility go hand in hand. We are launching this campaign to recognize the importance of living and drinking responsibly.”
“Strengths” will also be available for viewing on the GREY GOOSE “Celebrate the Best of Summer” hub on Facebook (www.facebook.com/GREYGOOSE), where fans will be able to share the message as a way to encourage friends to celebrate responsibly this weekend and beyond. In addition, the Facebook hub provides consumers with information on GREY GOOSE Summer Soiree(TM) events and enables them to view and share their own GREY GOOSE cocktail recipes.
GREY GOOSE Vodka has established itself as a leader in social responsibility through both awareness campaigns and its dedication to supporting charitable causes in local communities. During the past 10 years, GREY GOOSE Vodka has helped charities raise more than $1 billion dollars throughout the United States and will continue philanthropic activities throughout the summer.
