Pork and Apricot Meant To Be Together

The National Pork Board (of the USA) has launched two TV adverts in its campaign to promote “The Other White Meat”. “Help beat the blahs with a bit of fun! Discover The Other White Meat in the spotlight and the latest exploits of Pork Loin and Miss Apricot with the new TV and radio commercials and online fun. Brush up on some pork trivia and surprise friends and family with your shocking knowledge at the dinner table. Show your love of pork by sharing The Other White Meat with other pork aficionados with a free e-postcard. But whatever you do — Don’t be blah.” On their campaign web site the Funstufff section appeals to all funloving pork lovers:

In “Destiny on the High Sea” Captain Pork Cutlet and his mate Ginger collide with an Iceberg Lettuce. But all is not lost. Ginger Pork Salad is the delicious outcome – a combination that was destined to be together. Click on the image below to play the video in YouTube (HD)

They jump into the fire to become Apricot-Glazed Pork Chops, a ‘mouth-watering match… that’s certain to enliven up your dinner meal.” Click on the image below to play the video in YouTube (HD)

Corny? Yes but it certainly gets the family talking about pork for dinner tomorrow. The videos are streamed in Windows Media, Real and Quicktime.


The campaign was run by Dallas agency The Richards Group and bicoastal animation company Brand New School.
