Shredded Wheat Cereal
No Name, No Innovation
One of the best examples of branded entertainment I've seen - Post manages to make a cereal synonymous with octogenarians sexy. Even though they mention the words 'shredded wheat' about a dozen times, it doesn't feel like a commercial. It's a smart, fun comedy series that's expertly cast, and draws you into a century-old brand in an innovative way. And don't be surprised if you get a sudden craving for the shredded goodness. Or, an odd affinity for Frank Druffel, the eccentric President of the Shredded Wheat Factory. Oh, wait, maybe that's just me.
