Kroger “Get Low” Commercial by Cesar Pelizer and Hornet
From the release:
The spot is called “Get Low.” And thanks to a throwback Flo Rida tune and some cheerful comedic direction from Hornet Director César Pelizer, the :30-second ad is about as feel-good as a Golden Retriever puppy at a frisbee convention.
This commercial is the latest in an increasingly long line of endearing and entertaining spots we’ve been delighted to create alongside DDB New York for Kroger over the last year.
As a refresher: Last November, Kroger underwent a massive company rebrand. In addition to a new logo and slogan, they launched a mass media campaign that included a total overhaul of their visual identity.
A big part of this visual identity was a cast of original characters created by Hornet’s César Pelizer that would at once be appealing to, and representative of, the diversity of Kroger’s millions of customers — not to mention supportive of their “Fresh for Everyone” message.
