It’s not just an old wives’ tale, cheese really does make you dream, and we’ve made a campaign all about it for Pilgrims Choice.
Recent research indicates that amino acids found in cheese, especially cheddar, can indeed affect REM sleep, where you dream. To test this, we dosed cheese-loving Brits with an unusually punchy cheddar to see if it caused unusually vivid dreams.
Turns out, it does.
So we turned a real-life cheese lover’s dream into a TV ad, which blends live performance, puppetry and CGI to create a pretty surreal visual spectacle involving a pirate, a restaurant in the sky, and a cheeseburger with legs.
And the campaign doesn’t stop at TV. We’re using social, shopper and OOH advertising to ask consumers to get involved by sharing their #cheesedreams. We can’t wait to see what happens in the next cheese dream…
