New vegan meat commercial may be the best ever

Quorn has just launched a slick multi-channel campaign in the UK that flips the notion of what an ‘alternative protein’ is. Created to promote a new series of vegan deli meat slices, the campaign includes his television commercial titled “So Tasty!” Why Choose Alternatives? A woman named Lisa appears eating a sandwich stuffed with Quorn’s new slices.

As Lisa takes a bite, the narrator appears and says, “It’s so good, why would you choose another way?” As the camera zooms out, it is revealed that the narrator is a pig puppet. This doll sends the message that you don’t have to kill a pig to eat good ham, given the circumstances.

“This new campaign was created to connect with flexitarians who want to reduce their meat intake but not lose the taste and texture of the meat deli they know and love,” said Quorn Foods UK. Marketing Director Gill Riley said in a statement.

“We want to make people laugh while telling them how delicious our new products are. As we know, switching consumers from regular deli slices of meat to our products is another step in helping the planet.” “We consistently invest in research and technology to ensure that our products have the closest texture to meat and, most importantly, offer a juicy taste. We want consumers to feel that they have not compromised on their favorites.”

Vegan meat flips the script

Quorn’s new commercial is a clever adaptation of a typical meat industry ad, asking anthropomorphic animals to emotionally connect with humans. One example is Chick-Fil-A’s popular “Eat More Chicken” campaign. The campaign features cows begging humans to eat more chicken to save themselves and other species of their kind who were slaughtered for beef. This may seem funny, but only if it doesn’t connect the dots between animal suffering and products made from animals.

Another example is KFC 2017, where close-up shots show real chickens dancing to the late rapper DMX’s hit “X Gon’ Give It to Ya.” KFC created this commercial to convey the message that they are serving real chicken to consumers. But this time, the advertising scheme backfired, with viewers associating items on his KFC’s menu with real, live chickens. Some took to social media to announce that the commercial made them rethink their consumption of chicken.

Psychological research in this area points to the fact that humans do not develop an understanding that animals are food until later in life.His one such study, conducted by researchers at the University of Exeter in the UK, was published in April Social Psychology and Personality Science.

Here, researchers explored how attitudes about identifying some animals as food and others as pets or companions change from childhood to adulthood, in children aged 9 to 11. found that children up to 12 years of age were less likely to classify animals as food than older groups. Eating meat is shaped by external factors from childhood to adulthood.
