Marmite rides regal golden carriage around Chelsea to celebrate launch of truffle flavor
An ornate gold horse and carriage has been sent to greet the people of Chelsea, London, to promote the roll-out of Marmite Truffle.
Adam&EveDDB has played on Marmite Truffle’s ‘posher-than-posh spread’ positioning by creating an upmarket out-of-home (OOH) campaign placing ads in affluent locations and running straplines such as: “One either loves it or one finds it really rather beastly.”
Marmite Truffle’s OOH campaign
The campaign will run until June 26 and will feature a series of digital out-of-home (DOOH) ads. A billboard has been placed outside Harrods, which reads: “One either loves it or regurgitates in one’s designer handbag”; another on Chelsea Embankment states: “One either loves it or would rather gargle Thames Water”; and a third in Knightsbridge reads: “One either loves it or has to rinse one’s mouth with Earl Grey.”

The supporting social campaign will run on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and will also include print ads. Mindshare has planned Marmite’s media strategy and WCommunications was tasked with consumer outreach.
“Britain’s love affair with truffle shows no signs of slowing down, and we’ve carefully curated our new product with the distinct flavor of truffle for the most discerning Marmite connoisseur,” said Sophie Allan, senior brand manager at Marmite.
Ben Tollett, group executive creative director at Adam&EveDDB, added: “From the very first moment one saw this campaign one’s been struggling to contain one’s excitement.”
It’s Adam&EveDDB’s second campaign for a Marmite special addition after the agency helmed the Marmite Dynamite campaign in 2020.
