GALLERY 18: Cup-a-Soup - Marathon

Recognising that everyone is familiar with Cup-a-Soup and how it's made, Mother rejected the familiar product demonstration in favour of something more irreverent. Its priority was to modernise the brand which it attempts using a stylish, humorous and unexpected approach. Subverting the notion of traditional Cup-a-Soup moments, we see the drink in bizarre situations. Unusually high production values within the category and the warped humour make these ads really stand out.
