Warburtons Bread Take Off

Warburtons, a British bakery, has launched a television and print advertising campaign focusing on the delivery of bread to families throughout the UK every day of the year. The TV campaign which takes an ordinary scene, the daily departure of the bread delivery vans from a Warburton’s bakery, and exaggerates it for dramatic effect, creating a parody of an emotional scene in an nostalgic Hollywood feature film. Print ads show real Warbutons staff in their daily work roles, ensuring the bread is the very best quality. “We care because our name’s on it”.
