Hot dog character stars in Five promo ad

LONDON - Channel Five has appointed a new brand ambassador in its latest ad - a man dressed as a hotdog.

The channel has undertaken a new on air look and picked up a new brand line: "We are Five."

To launch this new positioning, Grey has produced a TV spot, which will run with 60-seconds and 30-seconds versions.

The ad is designed to highlight to viewers the fact that "the night is your oyster," encouraging them to spend a night in front of the television, by explaining the variety of drama's that play out on the channel.

And the character that delivers this message is a man in a hotdog suit, who is seen running around a sports ground delivering an impassioned monologue.
