product news: Vimto searches for star for new campaign
Published:  27 April, 2018

Soft-drinks brand Vimto is offering consumers the opportunity to star in its summer TV ad and social media campaign.

Vimto is calling for fans of all ages, from all walks of life to take part in an open casting session, taking place at a central Manchester location during May.

Those chosen to participate in the TV ad will also win a full year’s supply of Vimto.

The TV advert, which is launching in May, is part of a new £3m advertising campaign set to run throughout the summer.

Vimto mmarketing director Emma Hunt commented: “We’ve have a strong history in the North which we’ve built up over the past 110 years and as such, developed an amazingly loyal fan-base.

“We therefore want to reward this loyalty and thank consumers of the brand for being so supportive, by championing them in this ad, which is set to be one of the most of unique campaigns we’ve done to date.

“Anyone and everyone is welcome to take part, but we’re on the lookout for individuals with a cheeky sparkle.”

Potential TV ad stars will meet the crew behind the TV ad and the brand itself and will be asked to do a short piece-to-camera, for a chance to feature.

Places at the open casting session are limited and therefore Vimto is calling on those who wish to participate, to register their details by emailing:
