Speights Man Like Natural

Speight’s, New Zealand’s Southern Man beer, presents Speights Summit lager as the natural brew for the great outdoors in “Man Like Natural”, an advertising campaign. The Southern Man is a fairly uncomplicated creature. Strip him down to his basic desires and you’ll find a common instinct for getting back to nature, to be part of the great outdoors. Crossing rivers, throwing rocks, hunting deer, hanging out with wild pigs, eating meat are made complete with the natural Speights Summit.

We are the Spooky Men
We dream of mastodons
Practice mysterious handshakes
And we can grow beards, if we want to…
