GLENVIEW, IL--(Marketwire - Feb 2, 2013) - While one city may not win the trophy Sunday, they will be getting a cup... of JELL-O® pudding. Second place is nothing to be ashamed of and JELL-O, one of America's most beloved and iconic brands, is honoring the football team, its city and its fans that do not win with a new 30-second TV spot that will premiere following the game. The spot will also announce a "Pudding Surprise" event Tuesday, February 5 in the runner up's city.
While all the talk these days is about advertising during the big football game and which team is favored to win, JELL-O is the first to take a different approach and celebrate the runner up. As a continuation of the "Fun Things Up" campaign, which kicked off with JELL-O saving the world from the Mayan apocalypse, this new 30-second TV spot will show JELL-O celebrating the accomplishments of the team. The spot was created by CP+B.
"A successful season is reason enough to celebrate, because even when you lose some, you win some," said Greg Gallagher, Senior Brand Manager, JELL-O, Kraft Foods Group, Inc. "JELL-O has always been about funning things up and we want to put a smile on the town that has its spirits down -- plus nothing masks the bitter taste of defeat like the sweet taste of JELL-O Pudding."
To make the defeat even sweeter, JELL-O is enlisting the help of a former player to lead the charge and hand out JELL-O at Tuesday's event.
