Tyrrells go large

by Alice May


Tyrrells: “Tyrrellbly Tasty” - 30s

Having won a trio of KP Snacks accounts back in May, St Luke's is now unveiling their first work for one of those brands - the premium crisps Tyrrells. The ad uses real Pathé News footage to create a retro-world where, in cut-glass vowels, a voiceover comments on the folk at Tyrrell Farm as they harvest and prepare potatoes to be fried, bagged and sold.

But these aren't just any old spuds. These are whoppers half the size of a man; and the chillies which flavour them are also terrifyingly large. The only accent of colour in the ad, these humongous edibles arrest our attention pretty effectively while a little tea dance music plays throughout.

It's a charming balance between absurdity and the suggestion of good old fashioned quality. And what really swings it for us is the perfect delivery of that last line with its slight hesitation and emphasis on "...terribly, terribly tasty."
