RICK ASTLEY AND THE FRITO-LAY® TEAM TO REVERSE TRADITIONAL NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS WITH NEW YEAR, NEW YOU CAMPAIGN | Texas
PLANO, Texas, January 4, 2022 / PRNewswire / – British Musical Sensation Rick astley returns for a second year in Frito-Lay’s “New Year, New You” campaign. The 360-degree program highlights Astley’s hit song “Never Gonna Give You Up” as a reminder that while traditional New Year’s resolutions often focus on giving up, consumers can seize the moment to lean on what they like, especially when it comes to their favorite snacks. The 2022 “New Year, New You” campaign builds on the popular Astley spot which debuted in december 2020, this time with a new contest component and a duet chance with Astley on TikTok.
The “New Year, New You” campaign began on Christmas Day when a digital advertising featuring some of Frito-Lay’s favorite smartest snack choices including SunChips® Harvest Cheddar, Smartfood® White Cheddar Popcorn, SIMPLY Cheetos® Puffs White Cheddar and BAKED Lay’s®, has started streaming on Facebook , Instagram, YouTube, and Amazon, with audio on Spotify. Written to the tune of Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up,” the ad draws viewers with an upbeat message that moves away from the age-old New Year’s resolutions of sacrifice and compromise and focuses on embracing the things we like instead.
“Inspiring joy is at the heart of what Frito-Lay does, and in 2022 we are turning the script on New Year’s Resolutions by encouraging people to approach the year ahead with a positive frame of mind and to focus on not give up the things they like, “said Ciara Dilley, Frito-Lay vice president of marketing. “We are delighted to have Rick back as part of our ‘New Years, New You’ campaign which was created to help celebrate everyday things and find a little more balance in our lives.”
“No one should start a new year with a list of things they give up, so I partnered up with Frito-Lay again to continue to encourage people to do Following of what they like, ”Astley said. “The goal of the Frito-Lay ‘New Year, New You’ campaign is that we can still enjoy the things we love while making choices that we feel good about. It’s not just about snacking, either. It is an idea that can resonate in all areas of our life. “
Frito-Lay amplifies its “New Year, New You” message beyond the digital spot in which Astley appears with two opportunities for consumers to get involved.
