Warburtons: Burnt loaf


We wanted to hero the care & attention that the Warburtons family dedicates to the baking of their bread. It is this care that has ensured the freshest, best quality bread is still delivered to families throughout the UK, every day of the year. This has been bought to life in a TV campaign which takes an ordinary scene – such as the daily departure of the bread delivery vans from a Warburton’s bakery – and exaggerates it for dramatic effect, creating a parody of an emotional scene in an epic Hollywood feature film. In the same way, the print ads show real Warbutons staff in their daily work roles, ensuring the bread is the very best quality.

nothing but pure fun just like Warburtons and when it comes to screeching halt the fun's over. Nice work although not the best one.

Don't follow the herd - be yourself!
