Crude Alcohol Advertising

This Bundaberg Five Campaign has an Edgy Sense of Humor

— September 10, 2011 — Lifestyle
It's clear to me that I am not the target consumer for this Bundaberg Five campaign, and that the young man is rather the focus of this advertising effort. Two men in their late 20s or early 30s are each featured in one of these prints, demonstrating quite casually -- and unusually -- a couple of qualities associated with the distilled sugarcane liquor.

The first pictures a smug-looking guy in a lavishly ornamental bed with two dolphins. The message that accompanies this print reads "Raw like the sashimi of rum." In the second print a youthful amputee is captured, holding a glass of Bundaberg Rum in his prosthetic hand. "Filtered once for every finger you got," brings a controversial humor into this character's condition in the Bundaberg Five campaign by Leo Burnett of Sydney.
Trend Themes
1. Controversial Advertising Campaigns - The success of the Bundaberg Five campaign demonstrates the impact of edgy and humorous advertising in capturing the attention of younger generations.
2. Embracing Taboo Topics - Similar to Bundaberg Five, brands can innovate by addressing taboo or sensitive topics in a lighthearted and relatable way to connect with younger audiences.
3. Inclusive Advertising - The Bundaberg Five campaign's inclusion of a person with a disability shows the potential of promoting diversity and inclusivity in advertising, leading to a more positive brand image.
Industry Implications
1. Alcohol - With the rise of younger consumers who prioritize authenticity and humor in their choices, the alcohol industry can benefit from adopting bold and humorous advertising campaigns.
2. Marketing and Advertising - The Bundaberg Five campaign highlights the importance of staying on top of changing societal standards and being willing to take creative risks when creating advertising content.
3. Disability Services - The inclusion of a person with a disability in the Bundaberg Five campaign provides an opportunity for brands in the disability services industry to highlight the importance of inclusivity, diversity, and representation in creative endeavors.
