Clipper Teas article

March 15, 2014 | 2 min read

Well, well, well what do we have here? A world of serial cheats where everyone’s having affairs? Almost, but not quite.

They’re not cheating on their significant others; it’s not as sordid as that, they’re just cheating on their regular tea brand and switched to Clipper.

This light hearted campaign for Clipper Teas from BBH London challenges the major players in the tea market and marks an evolution in Clipper’s tone of voice, still traditional and charming, but with a new cheeky edge.

Shot by comedy director James Griffiths, whose credits include Channel 4’s ‘Free Agents’, Matt Le Blanc comedy ‘Episodes’, and feature film Cuban Fury, ‘Ditch the Old Bag’ certainly brought a smile to our faces this Saturday morning. Now, anyone for tea?
