When you think chocolate you think Cadbury. They are the daddy.
So for our first dabble into the world of chocolate we wanted to tip our hat to them and then pray that they won’t sue us – lol.
The Cadbury Gorilla advert has to be one of the most memorable and iconic adverts ever > WATCH NOW
Our version of the advert sees the patriotic build of Loch Lomond meet the surreal drum expertise of a life-size haggis and we are sure it will surprise and delight – just like the Chocolate Haggis itself!
Our advert is made more brilliant by the wonderfully talented people who agreed to join in with the madness…
Callum Wallace – The Haggis
Callum Wallace is a well-respected musician and entertainer who has been in the business now for over 30 years. Simon has known and worked with Callum for years and was the first person Simon thought of when asked to suggest an expert drummer who wouldn’t mind dressing up like a haggis! Luckily for us, Callum is a good sport and was perfect playing the lead role in our new campaign. We can’t thank him enough!
Callum operates the Tay Ceilidh Band, finalist at the Scottish Wedding Awards countless times. The band is available to hire for your next wedding or ceilidh. Disclaimer he will not be dressed as haggis. Learn more: www.callumwallace.co.uk
Aaron King – Vocalist
While a haggis playing the drums is certainly memorable. The gravelly, patriotic vocals of Aaron King elevate the advert to something unforgettable.
Aaron King is a singer/songwriter from Edinburgh, Scotland. Growing up with a musical background, Aaron quickly ascended onto the Edinburgh music scene at the age of 16, experimenting primarily with alt rock, folk & jazz. Since then, he has played in well-known Glasgow venues such as The 02 Academy, King Tuts & Edinburgh’s Voodoo Rooms.
The advert wouldn’t have been possible without the talents of renowned musician and musical director Robert Black. A close friend of Simon he did us a wonderful favour in guiding us and bringing together the final soundtrack. It was an absolute pleasure.
The wonderful team at Frame and MTP for all their hard work and expertise. We all knew from the start it was going to be a fun project to work on together and it was even better than we thought. It was BANGIN’
