Connor’s gets Straight to the Pint

Stright to the Pint

(Marketingmagazine.com.my) – In its latest campaign for Carlsberg, Havas Worldwide Malaysia launched a new campaign for its Connor’s Stout Porter brand aptly titled ‘Straight to the Pint’.

Targeted at consumers between the age group 25-40, the message behind the campaign was to showcase the brand as a no-nonsense beer, that is just made right.

The campaign aims to inspire people to immerse themselves in candid and spontaneous interactions with people they are  close with.

The three-month long campaign, which was launched nationwide in April, will run across key media platforms including digital, print and OOH.

Creative execution for the campaign includes a series of chalkboards placed outside pubs and bars, which invited consumers to come in and enjoy a pint of Connor’s Stout Porter.

Additionally, the agency created an activation called “A Night Made Right”, a nightlong of games, contests and casual fun for groups of friends, which was organized at bars across Malaysia.

As part of a Night Made Right, the agency created a promotion called “Pay What’s Right”, where consumers can pay whatever they feel is the right price for a pint.

Other activities include “Slide-for-a-Pint” game, where consumers slide a Connor’s Stout Porter pint on a table and will win free pints if they manage to get the pint within the targets.
