Leo Burnett launches musical TVC introducing Bundaberg Five white rum

The campaign also includes social media elements utilising Facebook, followed by a 60-second TVC, online, print and outdoor media in the coming weeks.

“The TV spot features a young man in a typically boring bar, with tired décor and dull people sucking down bland drinks," explained Bundaberg Rum marketing manager Matt Bruhn."He is about to conform, and order a bland drink, when the barman (a magical fellow in a white tux) intervenes, and takes him on a musical journey through a world filled with players, gold, fountains and a camel – the character‐filled world of 'Bundaberg Five'.”

Bruhn added that 'Bundaberg Five' provided an alternative drink for youth demographics, saying that "the rum has been distilled five times and aged in white oak to give it a strong, clear character – a unique presence in the white spirits category.”
