New ‘Kill Hungrythirsty Dead’ Campaign Launches For OAK Via The Monkeys

A decade after the launch of its first ‘Kill Hungrythirsty Dead’ campaign, The Monkeys is back with new work for OAK.

The latest commercial in the long-standing campaign takes us back to a familiar fairground, where a plush teddy bear picks up the monologue that character Sergeant John Henry left off.

The self-aware bear reminds us in no uncertain terms that OAK, with its full strength and full flavour, is still the only way to tackle Hungrythirsty.

Lactalis General Manager Marketing, Angela Burr, says: “OAK is an incredible brand to have in the portfolio and we are very excited to be launching a new campaign with our long-standing agency The Monkeys.

“OAK has a history of provocative and disruptive creative, and any creative idea for this brand needs to be bold, brave and irreverent. We love the work!”

Ant Keogh, The Monkeys Chief Creative Officer, says: “This new episode takes a sideways path, picking up on one of the other characters in the OAK universe. A place where even the teddy bears are no-nonsense tough guys.”

The campaign will appear on TV, online and in-store this winter.

The TVC was directed by Leilani Croucher and produced by Revolver, with VFX completed by Heckler.
