It’s become something of a cliché to describe marketing ideas as groundbreaking - but our collaboration with Baby Cow and Alan Partridge fully justifies that tag.”

He continued: “We are pushing the boundaries of brand building with this incredible project, and the levels of consumer engagement it is delivering are a massive reward for the leap of faith that the Foster’s team and Baby Cow took when we teamed up earlier this year.”
