Leading the charge.

Cannaray: “CBD Revolution” - 30s

With cannabinoids such as CBD receiving a boom in popularity of late (the industry is predicted to be worth over $25 billion by 2025), UK-based brand Cannaray are out to get a slice of the heath and wellness industry pie. This campaign eases viewers into the concept of marijuana-adjacent products with a familiar face, as Claudia Winkleman pledges to front the CBD revolution.

An outlandish fantasy sequence provides a whimsical counterpoint to the ad's otherwise down to earth tone, with Winkleman conversationally addressing viewers from the sofa before being transported to a woodland revolution complete with garish uniforms. Viewers may need more information before deciding to live the viva CBD lifestyle, but this will tempt enquiring minds to find out more.
