The Inclusive Beer Ad

Agency: BBDO


On may 18 2019, Sarah Bettens, one of Belgium’s most famous rock stars, announced her transition towards masculinity and became Sam Bettens. One day later, Jupiler, Belgium’s most masculine beer brand with the 30-year old baseline “men know why”, published a newspaper ad stating two simple words: “Pintje, Sam?”. In English: “Fancy a beer, Sam?”. The message to men was clear: Sam is instantly one of the guys. A traditional brand suddenly made a strong point about the normalization of transgender people. Without endless debates. Just no-nonsense instant acceptance.

This professional campaign titled 'The Inclusive Beer Ad' was published in Belgium in November, 2019. It was created for the brand: Jupiler, by ad agency: BBDO. This Print medium campaign is related to the Alcoholic Drinks industry and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted about 4 years ago by Creative: Frederik Clarysse of BBDO Belgium.
