Tip Top ice cream has launched a new creative platform, Good to Share, with a 30-second brand film, OOH and digital from Colenso BBDO.

The film celebrates the sharing of good times, good friends and of course, good Tip Top ice creams. Along with a range of Kiwis sharing ice cream moments, it draws heavily on the ‘sharing world’ of social platforms too. Similarly, the OOH plays on the idea of sharing with group selfies.

Colenso ECD Steve Cochran said: “Ice creams are something we predominantly enjoy with others. And because we capture and share those occasions so readily these days, ice cream naturally shows up in social content. So, embracing the language and aesthetic of social sharing became quite central to our idea of ice cream sharing.

“However, the feel-good 30-second film is only the start. Reasons-to-believe, like only natural colours and flavours in all its ice creams, or the fact they get their boysenberries from Nelson for their Trumpets, mean Tip Top has a lot of ‘good’ stories to follow up with over the summer.

“Tip Top Group marketing manager Katie McClure said: “At Tip Top we’re very proud of what we do and how we do it. Our New Zealandness. Our history. Our ingredient story. Our open factory tour. Our staff. It’s all stuff New Zealanders can be proud of too. We want to share these great stories that our brand has. And if possible, help Kiwis appreciate what makes Tip Top so unique and special.

“During the filming of the videos much content was collected to create supplementary social posts for the summer including various gifs, looped videos, emoji interactions and the like.”

Cochran said: “Creating a complete campaign for a broad target, including those elusive 18-24 year olds, means shoots have become as much a content gathering exercise as they are a script shooting one.

“Making a single highly produced TVC is often not going to cut it these days; we need to use our budgets to produce lots of small reasons to pop up in a multitude of channels with something fresh or interesting. Good to Share is a perfect platform for just that.”
