Heinz Ketchup Brings The Big Band

I recently wrote about an ad for Heinz’s new mayonnaise. Now we’re back to what Heinz is best known for: ketchup. Specifically, what’s the song playing in this ad where a sprout grows into a tomato plant and then a bottle of Heinz ketchup? You’ve probably heard it, since it’s a famous big band song that’s strongly associated with the 1940s and World War II. That song is “In The Mood” by Glenn Miller.

Sandwiches Love Heinz’s New Mayonnaise

I’m a huge fan of both sandwiches and mayonnaise, so I heard about the introduction of Heinz Mayonnaise with some interest. Heinz, of course, is best known for their ketchup, but I guess they’ve decided to expand their portfolio with some creamy white stuff. They’re also apparently releasing “mayochup”, which Utahns have long known as fry sauce. Anyway, in this spot for Heinz Mayonnaise, sandwiches (or uhh, people dressed up as sandwiches) line up at the Heinz Deli, eagerly awaiting to get topped. “Yesterday’s Mayo” doesn’t seem so happy though.

Heinz Has A Hit With Its Wiener Stampede Super Bowl Commercial

Ads with dogs tend to be very popular (provided that they also don’t have Sarah McLachlan). The reason is quite simple: dogs are cute. I’m fairly certain people will love “Wiener Stampede”, Heinz’s Super Bowl spot showcasing a bunch of hot dogs and costumed people dressed as condiments to put on them. It’s set to Harry Nilsson’s classic “Without You”, which now has a weird association for me because of The Rules of Attraction (NFSW link).

Cute Brothers Love Heinz Beanz

I’m going to include a link to Adweek’s article, since they say pretty much everything I was going to. It’s a real nice spot for Heinz Beanz, a classic comfort food in the UK. Cute and charming without being cheesy.
