Wonder Smooth Wholegrain Campaigns Give White Bread Back To Kids

Kids lamenting what they have to put up with in 2016 compared to when their parents were growing up with promises of the jetpack, flying cars and building real dinosaurs is the foundation of a new campaign for Wonder Smooth Wholegrain Bread.

Led by Goodman Fielder’s media agency Slingshot and produced by creative services business KOJO, the content series of six films sees children asking parents to ‘Give white bread back to the kids’, encouraging them to trial the bread that has all the best bits, without the bits.

The campaign features two hero videos and four other pieces of video and social content that will run across YouTube, Facebook and on selected media sites until October.

Slingshot, which won the consolidated media account for Goodman Fielder’s Grocery and Baking divisions in March this year, developed the strategy focused on capturing the attention of mums and using emotive storytelling and humour to reflect on her life.

The Sydney-based independent agency engaged KOJO which produced the content series including writing the scripts, casting, filming and editing.

Chris Johnston, head of digital & data at Slingshot said: “We wanted to find a way to build on the great campaign creative developed by creative agency, Richards Rose, by adding a layer of related content that would both entertain and educate our audience.

“There’s a nice element of nostalgia that will resonate with our audience, particularly when its delivered by today’s kids. This suite of content will significantly increase our ability to maintain relevance and attention with our audience over time, well beyond what can be expected of a one-off campaign.”

Richard Coburn, director at KOJO added: “We wanted to create engaging, humorous pieces to really connect with audiences across the digital platforms and build upon the brand’s personality.

“Our designers created this wonderful, colourful adult world that subtly reflected the Wonder Smooth Wholegrain brand, but the kids were the real heroes of this project. Throughout filming the kids were amazing and it was one of the most enjoyable on set experiences the KOJO team have had.

“It was the first time that Slingshot, Goodman Fielder and KOJO have come together to partner on a project, and the result is a range of dynamic and funny videos where kids play in the adult world, asking only for the return of white bread.”
