Montana’s Releases the World’s First Ad Campaign Paid for in Meat

To prove that Montana’s Best of BBQ Sampler event is irresistible, the Montana’s team tried to shoot an entire ad campaign by bartering with BBQ ribs, sausages, chicken, brisket, and shrimp. And it worked.

Montana’s surprised real businesses in Toronto by simply walking in and offering a plate of BBQ meat in exchange for goods and services. Over two days of bartering and shooting, they received a psychic reading, an MMA lesson, a manicure, a yoga lesson, men’s skin care products, some new shoes, a haircut, a bouquet of flowers, an area rug, a massage and even a real tattoo.

Chelsea Kellock, Brand Manager at Montana’s says “This ad campaign proves with real people, just how irresistible our BBQ is.” She added “Hardly anyone turns down a platter of BBQ. Forget about Bitcoins, meat is much more widely accepted.”

The Best of BBQ Sampler Event at Montana’s allows each guest to choose two meats and a side. When they bring more people, they have the option to share more BBQ.

The ads will be airing in cinemas across Canada, on TSN and online pre-roll. Longer versions of each encounter will be released on Montana’s Facebook page and on Twitter.
