Campbell’s Chunky Launches NFL Campaign in Drew Brees’ Basement + Super Bowl Tickets

In case you missed it, Campbell’s® Chunky™ soup, the Official Soup Sponsor of the NFL, enlisted six NFL players, Drew Brees, Odell Beckham Jr., Eddie Lacy, Todd Gurley, Eric Ebron and Kyle Long, to star in the new Everyman All-Star League campaign. The campaign reverses fantasy football roles in a unique turn of events, where six stand-out NFL athletes will serve as the league’s general managers, for ‘everyday’ participants to be drafted into the Everyman All-Star League.

“In this campaign, we turned the tables on traditional fantasy football and asked NFL superstars to draft everyday guys in Drew Brees’ basement,” said Abby Elu, Brand Manager, Campbell’s Chunky soup. “In a fun and light-hearted way, the campaign celebrates the daily victories the ‘everyman’ tackles on and off the field and highlights how Chunky soup fills up all kinds of people – from a Super Bowl stars to busy parents and loyal neighbors.”

Look Out for the Chunky Food Truck

Y&R New York created the advertising campaign to play on the popularity of fantasy football and offer an opportunity for top NFL stars to champion the everyday guy. Two humorous spots, Montage and Draft Day,” are currently live on YouTube. Throughout the NFL season, four additional spots featuring Brees, Beckham Jr., Lacy, Gurley, Ebron and Long will premiere on ESPN, the NFL Network and YouTube capturing the action of the Everyman All-Star League from Drew Brees’ basement.

The Chunky integrated marketing campaign includes Everyman All-Star League on-air and digital integrations on NFL Network and ESPN, along with local market activations and social media engagement. Throughout the season, a Chunky food truck will tour local supermarkets and stadiums on game day to offer people the opportunity to sample the latest Chunky flavors. There will also be several activations leveraging Campbell’s NFL team deals, including in-store appearances and NFL player meet and greets.
