Wheat Thins Is Trying To Target Me. I Can Feel It.

Call this a hobby of mine; analyzing what a brand is trying to do. Now they’ve got two new videos, with one featuring Tracy Morgan, and another with Alex Trebek. Check em out! I’m not being paid by Wheat Thins, I’m simply a connoisseur of both advertising and snacking.

Methinks Wheat Thins is trying to get me to eat more of their crackers. I sat up and noticed the cleverness of their campaign featuring Stewie and Brian from Family Guy. Hmm… going for the younger hipper demographic, right? Men, perhaps? Whatever the case, they’re getting on the viral bandwagon. (They have their own Youtube channel, for crying out loud.) They have a TWITTER Account, which is absolutely SLAUGHTERING me in followers. (Note to wheat thins: follow me!) This might be due to the fact that one time they picked a random fan on twitter and surprised them with more Wheat Thins any one person could conceivably eat. That said, who wouldn’t enjoy such a surprise? The things I would do to those crackers! (Nothing strange, to be honest I was thinking cheese.)

The brand tackles old gender stereotypes with new versions of their 1950’s ads. 

Published

As part of International Women’s Day, Budweiser has adapted their own old ads, once portraying women as housewives serving their husbands and reworked them into a more modern point of view.

Appearing in the pages of The New York Times, Chicago Tribune or L.A. Times today, the ads still look like the colorful, retro pages of a newspaper from the 1950s, but instead of serving the beer, they’re enjoying it themselves.

Beyond commemorating International Women’s Day, the brand is also a partner with #SeeHer, an industry effort to improve how women are portrayed across all advertising.
