Communique set to refresh XXXX

Communique PR has landed a consumer brief to revita­lise the Castlemaine XXXX lager with a light-hearted PR campaign based on the laid-back 'I don't give a XXXX' attitude.

Among the ideas it has ­developed is a ‘Desperate Worklives’ campaign, which aims to spring beleaguered blokes from female-dominated ­offices and give them a weekend to remember.

A ­variety of stunts would be staged in towns and cities featuring the ‘Ute’, the pick-up truck that is synonymous with the Australian Outback.

The campaign will be led by account manager Dan McMullan. Communique ­already works on Castlemaine XXXX sister brand Boddingtons.
