US Ad of the Week: MilkPEP ‘Take it Away’

Team USA soccer pro Kelley O’Hara shows off her skills when she stumbles across a group of guys playing a game of pick-up soccer in MilkPEP’s latest spot.

Voted by US Creative Department readers as Ad of the Week, the spot was created by Campbell Ewald to celebrate the strength of female athletes and showcase the protein and nutrients that are found in low-fat chocolate milk.

The video is the latest installment in the company’s ‘Built With Chocolate Milk’ campaign, which aims to market chocolate milk as a serious recovery drink for athletes rather than a kid’s snack.

The ad launched on national TV on 1 June, ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup that kicked off on 6 June.
