Lilt idents by Mother introduce chilled-out parrot

LONDON - Lilt is championing its tropical flavour through a new character - a parrot DJ with a West Indian accent.

The series of TV idents, created by Mother, will promote Lilt's sponsorship of ITV2 Daytime.

The campaign features the parrot exhibiting his mc skills as he spins records on decks, plays keyboards and flicks (as best he can with a pair of clawed feet) through his record collection.

In one spot the parrot is portrayed as a Prima Donna, complaining about the shininess of its beak.

The set of ads will run during ITV2's daytime programming, with each ad carrying its iconic "totally tropical taste" strap line.
