Ciuc Radler® is teaming up with Minio Studio for what promises to be an intense and fun summer, with the launch of the new flavor: Watermelon and Blackcurrant.
Ciuc Radler® aims to be one of the new generation's favorite drinks and to start the fun, anytime, anywhere and with anyone. For Gen-Z, fun is often a planned affair - which comes under the eternal "when...". We often hear "when we go to a festival, when we have a party, when we go on holiday". Most of the times, planning fun is yet another anxiety that young people feel in the context of a busy and alert life.
As a catalyst for everyday fun, Ciuc Radler® starts communicating on a new platform "Get Your Dose of FUN", with the first communication flight kicking off in April. But this summer promises to bring a lot of fun with the launch of the new Radler® with Watermelon and Blackcurrant. This is a local innovation and complements the brand portfolio, which now includes 4 assortments, all with 0.00% alcohol.
"The new platform is unprecedented and extremely joyful. We try not to take ourselves so seriously, to create and propagate fun in everything we do. This is why Ciuc Radler® wants to bring in a dose of fun - through both product and communication", said Sharon Annette, Marketing Director HEINEKEN Romania.
Thus, the Radler® summer will be lived under #OSăFiePepene (#ThereWillBeWatermelon) - because an intense 360 communication will follow, at the end of which all teams involved will refresh themselves with a Radler®. The campaign includes a new TV commercial, where the consumers will discover two surprising characters.
Following the new TV commercial, Ciuc Radler® changed the social media communication as well, and will launch a project with GenZ content creators. DZF will be a series of humorous content, a real dose of fun. Moreover, Ciuc Radler® has planned special outdoor projects, brand activations and in-store promotions, culminating with being present at Electric Castle, one of the hottest local festivals.
So, this summer with Radler® #WillBeWatermelon (#OSăFiePepene).
The new communication platform is developed and implemented by Minio Studio, the strategic communication agency, the new partner that Ciuc Radler® chose following a pitch conducted mid last year. This year again, the media partner is Dentsu, which will manage media communication across all the brand's channels, online and offline.
