Fisherman's Friend resurrects classic character for TV ads

Be the first to comment

LONDON - Confectionery brand Fisherman's Friend is rolling out a new animated TV campaign featuring its classic fisherman character.

The two 20-second ads, created by design agency The Brand Engine and animation production company Film Club, show the fisherman in his trawler battling against poor weather conditions.

In one ad, the trawler is sailing through a thunder storm, while in the other the fisherman must navigate the boat through icy waters.

In both executions, the fisherman begins to suck on some Fisherman's Friend and the conditions immediately begin to clear. The ads end with the strapline 'Never Be without A Friend'.
