Award-winning rum debuts social and digital ad spots resolving to “Make Time for Friends”
BARDSTOWN, Ky. – Blackheart Spiced Rum is on a mission to bring back regular hangout habits and prioritizing time with friends this year, enlisting Jenny McCarthy as Friendship Coach extraordinaire in an outrageous parody campaign to help people “Make Time for Friends.” The actress, comedian, host, and best-selling author will train people who are struggling to pick cheers over chores and show them how to break out of the adulting routine, reconnect and recharge with Blackheart Rum.
The national media program will debut new social and digital ads featuring Coach Jenny running a series of drills on how to get back in a friendship routine together with Blackheart Rum. Using her honesty, humor and humility, Coach Jenny gets real with her trainees in the ten and thirty second spots featuring tips ranging from the perfect garnish to prioritizing happy hour over laundry.
“Blackheart Spiced Rum has a fun, empowering characteristic that comes to life through Coach Jenny’s friendship training techniques,” said Hannah Venhoff, Group Product Director, Heaven Hill Brands. “Our consumer has spent the last several years navigating big responsibilities and life changes and now we want them to know its ok to take time for themselves, be social and get up to something good. With Coach Jenny’s help, Blackheart can help them toast to what matters most in life, the people you love and the things you love doing.”
