Grabbing a beer, or Grabsting a Pabst!?
The goal of this campaign was two-fold – tell people that PBR makes more than beer, and show people that this 177-year-old brand can hang.
Our idea was to revamp PBR's classic 50's advertising jingle. To bring it to life, we hand-picked 15 creators to visually articulate the lyrics and then wove everything together editorially. (Un-fun fact, we were about to shoot a music video, COVID hit, we pivoted.)
We also made shortform "jinglettes" to sing the praises of individual Pabst beverages, from OG PBR to white whiskey.
