FMCG : “Well done McCain for once again making such a good advert that recognises all of society”
McCain has launched ‘Here’s to Love’, the next execution of the We Are Family series, turning the spotlight onto relationships and love by celebrating how a wide range of different couples connect nowadays.
Created by adam&eveDDB, the £3.2 million multi-channel We Are Family: ‘Here’s To Love’ campaign will be rolled out across TV, VOD, OOH, cinema, print and online media and social channels for six weeks.

The advert, which was directed by Knucklehead’s Finn McGough, is the second in the We Are Family series and shines a light on couples with a diverse mix of real people. The first advert, which launched last September, featured real families in their homes and the reality of modern day family life and mealtimes – the new campaign is an extension of its focus on teatimes which it started in 2015.
Stemming off the back of research which identified that 84% of consumers were unable to recall seeing anything in popular culture that featured a family like their own, the campaign celebrates real relationships and love, with the intention of reflecting the reality of the British population who buy McCain products.
‘Here’s To Love’ debuted on Channel 4 on 9th February, targeted at adults looking to make weeknight meal occasions special and highlighting the suitability of McCain’s chilled and frozen range. McCain first entered the chilled potato category in September 2016, focusing on two-person households through the launch of two new ranges.

For me it is important that as a big brand we’re there to champion and celebrate diversity in this nation. The world is changing and I think as a brand rather than resist it we should embrace and celebrate it.

Mark Hodge, McCain

This meal for two at-home experience has been replicated in the latest advert, which also aims to touch on the growing consumer demand for products that mirror dining out trends and offer a simple option for adults looking to cook something tasty for tonight.

Featuring the voice of actor and comedian Ricky Tomlinson, the advert follows eight couples during everyday moments and highlights how they interact with one other over meal-time.
