    Pure Blonde partners with The Monkeys to relaunch brand

    Pure Blonde has partnered with The Monkeys, part of Accenture Song, to relaunch its brand, re-establishing the original ‘A Place Purer Than Yours’ platform.

    The hero of the relaunch, directed by Freddy Mandy, marks the return of the Australian ultra-low carb beer label to its forested roots, depicting a utopian, imaginary world uncorrupted by modern life.

    The film follows a trespasser into the world of Pure Blonde encounter locals who go to great lengths to preserve the purity of the brew.

    Live from the 5th of May in Australia and New Zealand, the campaign will be rolled out across broadcast television, OLV, OOH, social and digital audio.

    “The real world is an impure place. It was when Pure Blonde first launched, and it’s arguably gotten worse,” said chief creative officer of The Monkeys, Ant Keogh.

    “So, it made sense to revisit the original brand world: and see what measures they are taking to keep the beer pure.” 

    Tessa Whittaker, marketing manager for Pure Blonde at Carlton & United Breweries said the new campaign builds on those symbolics of a delicious, natural world that first launched the brand.

    “This new campaign seeks to build on those original semiotics, remind drinkers that Pure Blonde is 86 calories per bottle, and appeal to a new audience that doesn’t want to compromise on taste when it comes to low carb beer,” said Whittaker.

    Earlier this month, The Monkeys scored six of Australia’s 14 gongs at the 64th annual Clio Awards, including nabbing gold in the film craft (musical – original) category for its ‘Play it Safe’ campaign. 

    The Monkeys’ winning work, directed by Kim Gehrig and fronted by popular Australian actor and musical comedian Tim Minchin, was created by the agency in celebration of The Sydney Opera House’s 50th anniversary.
