TV, Digital, Hispanic Opps: Bud Light scrapping ‘Up for Whatever' for possible December campaign

Subject: TV, digital, online, social media, mobile, experiential, events, sponsorship

Brand: Bud Light, US's largest beer brand

Opportunity: After two years, Bud Light is finally putting down its “Up for Whatever” campaign. A-B InBev’s VP of US marketing Jorn Socquet said at the National Beer Wholesalers Association’s annual meeting that the “Up for Whatever” campaign was “trying too hard” to appeal to younger drinkers. Therefore, W+K took over the account from BBDO in July). Soquet declined to offer many details about the campaign, except to say it could debut as early as December or as late as the Super Bowl and that it would involve celebrities.

Speaking of the Super Bowl, A-B InBev is the exclusive beer advertiser for the game. Soquet indicated that Bud and Bud Light would not be the only beer’s touted by the brewer at the game; for example, it was recently confirmed that Shock Top will get one ad. Again, not many details are known, but Soquet did say that: “Every agency knows what we are expecting them to deliver and the best work will get the Super Bowl spots.”
