Richmond Ham: nude farmer TV ad to air next week

The campaign will launch on June 4 and centre on a TV ad created by Quiet Storm. It will be accompanied by outdoor advertising.

The ad features a young male farmer strolling naked through a rural village, while enjoying a Richmond Ham sandwich.  The farmer proclaims the benefits of natural ingredients, and the ad is set to the Sammy Davis Jr song, 'I've gotta be me'.

Claire Winstanley, marketing director, meats, at Kerry Foods, the maker of Richmond Sausages, claims the new product is "game-changing for the ham market."

In addition to the TV ad, the campaign will feature a sampling campaign running across Asda and Tesco stores throughout the summer.

The sampling will include farmer-themed sampling bars and stands, which will offer shoppers the chance to try the cooked ham.

Kerry Foods launched its Richmond brand into the cooked ham category in the UK in May.

The Irish food manufacturer claims the product is the UK's first cooked ham made with 100% natural ingredients.
