Leading British rice brand Tilda® will unveil its biggest ad campaign since it was founded over 45 years ago.
The new TV creative, scheduled to air nationally from Saturday 20th October, is a vibrant celebration of all the cultures of the UK. Tildalicious brings to life the culinary journey of different Tilda rice grains through the hands of real-life cooks from all over the world, via their UK kitchens. Through this journey, cultures collide, new techniques and flavours are shared in the wonderful chaos of real life. Along with the succession of close-ups of dishes from around the world, the word ‘Delicious’ is displayed in global languages.
The advert was cast and produced by Shoreditch production studio Archer’s Mark and directed by one of the latest additions to their expanding roster, the supremely talented Fred Scott. Created by advertising agency Havas London – Tildalicious is the first work to be released since being named as the brand’s UK strategic and creative agency.
Elliot Harris, Deputy Executive Creative Director at Havas London, adds: “What a brilliant brief. Does any other food span as many cultures, nationalities, communities and generations as naturally as rice? The result is a properly authentic, joyous, modern brand celebrating its position right at the intersection of British food culture. I love the idea that the many diverse communities that make up the UK will see themselves represented in such an honest, relatable way.”
The TV ad will run from October until the end of November 2018. Contact Nicky Flemming for more info firstname.lastname@example.org
