  • California Milk Processor Board

Despite its role as a legacy, nutritional staple in the American home, milk is heading for the “canceled” list as many jump on new food alternatives. For its latest campaign, the California Milk Processor Board (CMPB), creator of the iconic ‘got milk?’, has set out to explore how people react when the most basic and most wholesome “good” things in life are thrown into question. The “Never Doubt What You Love” (NDWYL) parody news ad campaign is running in English and Spanish, to put things straight and reassure people that they can simply trust their “good” instincts. A steady stream of sensational claims has been causing Americans to question milk’s benefits and doubt its nutritional value, contributing to a steady decline in consumption. As a brand that has always lived on the cusp of popular culture, the ‘got milk?’ “Never Doubt What You Love” campaign is designed to shed light on the growing issue of untruths or misinformation about milk circulating on the internet and to help engage and encourage parents and kids to think twice about milk in the context of this misinformation. To launch the campaign, ‘got milk?’ tapped the talents of ‘The Office’ star and comedian Brian Baumgartner, who serves as a roving reporter in Southern California, reeling people in with his charming smile and welcoming demeanor. While in Downtown Los Angeles and at Venice Beach, he put on his serious face to gain the trust of locals while he relayed false information. The “Never Doubt What You Love” news team also features Afro-Latinx actress/writer & Netflix’s ‘Gentefied’ star Julissa Calderon as its ‘got milk?’/’toma leche’ ambassador for the brand’s Spanish-language creative. The “Never Doubt What You Love” campaign is aimed at Millennial parents, with a focus on multicultural and Hispanic consumers across California. Via the creative spots, the witty hosts provide a platform for discussion with Californians on the street to evaporate doubt caused by misleading messages about milk. The truth is revealed through creative parody, laughter, and a reminder to stay true to what you love.  The spots will run across network TV throughout CA, with additional long-form video and shorter cuts of the spots running across Connected TV. Additional elements include integrated partnerships with Popsugar, Thrillist, Café Mom, Mamas Latina and, digital audio running on iHeart Media, social components across Instagram and Facebook, search, OOH, along with a PR/influencer component.
