    Swedish pastille brand gives voice to ‘Makes People Talk’ slogan with rousing speech

    BBDO Nordics to go all-in with a comedic take on the traditional power speech for Lakerol.

    Swedish pastille brand Lakerol is subverting the motivational speech prevalent in Hollywood movie tropes as it looks to inspire increased candy consumption.

    Drawing from the likes of Mel Gibson’s rallying call to his men as William Wallace in 1995’s Braveheart as well as Russell Crowe’s 2000 turn as former Roman General Maximus in Gladiator, Lakerol gives voice to its ’Makes People Talk’ brand slogan.

    In use since 1993, the phrase has become an established part of the cultural landscape in Scandinavia, prompting BBDO Nordics to go all-in with a comedic take on the traditional power speech.

    Transferring this language from the big screen to everyday life, the campaign illustrates how a well-timed rousing speech can deliver desired change in the domestic environment as well as the battlefield, including convincing your friends that it would be a good idea to hit the town on a Friday night.

    This messaging is communicated via three short films produced by Business Club Royale. The Lakerol brand is owned by European confectionery giant Cloetta.
