Clemenger BBDO Sydney & Glue Society Release “Kebab Shopera” For Dry July

Clemenger BBDO Sydney has paired up with The Glue Society to give Aussie drinkers a glimpse at what happens to your favourite late night kebab store during the horrible month of Dry July.

Together with The Glue Society’s Paul Bruty, Song Zu and one of Opera Australia’s brightest young tenors, John Longmuir, Clemenger BBDO Sydney has released the ‘Kebab Shopera’ for not-for-profit organisation, Dry July. The spot follows a kebab shop owner who laments the fact his late-night customers are taking a month off the booze.

Dry July realises that convincing people to give up the booze is no easy task, and that often the obvious health and financial benefits are simply not enough of an incentive to take part.

Executive creative director Paul Nagy said, “Let’s be brutally honest, most Australians would rather choose to sit through another 12 months of election campaigning than go 31 days without alcohol.

“The Kebab Shopera aims to appeal directly to younger adults and help make Dry July feel like an accustomed habit.”

Brett Macdonald, co-founder & CEO of Dry July, added, “Dry July is much more than giving up alcohol for a month. It’s the chance to help people affected by cancer by raising funds to make their lives more comfortable.

“I think the Kebab Shopera reminds everyone that it’s just a month without alcohol and by taking part, (almost) everybody wins!”
