While San Francisco may not have won the trophy, 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, along with Ronnie Lott, is honoring the San Francisco football team and its fans with a “Pudding Surprise” event this Tuesday, February 5 in San Francisco.
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, the new 30-second TV spot shows JELL-O celebrating the accomplishments of the San Francisco team. The spot premiered following the game and 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 a 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. There’s nowhere else we’d rather be than San Francisco.”
“San Francisco should be proud of the team’s accomplishments — we’ve had a great season,” said Ronnie Lott. “I’m thrilled to be working with JELL-O in the city I love, and where I played for years, to remind people to smile, celebrate great moments and have fun!”
On Tuesday, San Francisco residents can meet Ronnie Lott at Broadway and Columbus Ave. at 12:30 PM PST and receive free JELL-O Pudding cups. For additional “Pudding Drop” locations and times in San Francisco, please visit www.FunThingsUp.com.
Fans not in the area can visit the site for a JELL-O digital coupon to celebrate. And since no one likes being pushed when they’re down, San Francisco fans can download a browser plug-in to block any gloating from Baltimore fans.
