Global launches national advertising campaign for Capital Breakfast

A new heavyweight advertising campaign to promote Capital’s first nationwide breakfast show has launched on TV, billboards, cinema and social.

The campaign premiered on TV during The Voice UK live final on ITV1 tonight ahead of the nationwide launch of Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp on Monday, April 8th.

The TV ad features Little Mix, Liam Payne, Shawn Mendes, Cheryl, Anne-Marie, Halsey, Olly Alexander, David Guetta and Marshmello.

Global has teamed up with creative agency Lucky Generals for the first time to create the campaign. In the TV ad, Capital Breakfast is reimagined as a breakfast cereal, with Roman Kemp, Vick Hope and Sonny Jay taking the viewer through their extraordinary world, packed with musical stars.

Little Mix glide through a multi-coloured sky on a magical spoon, Liam Payne chases the Breakfast hosts riding a giant toy dinosaur and Anne-Marie surfs through breakfast cereal on a jet-ski dodging Cheryl, Shawn Mendes and Halsey in her path.

The marketing campaign will run across TV, Cinema, Social, VOD and Outdoor and will introduce people across the UK to Capital’s new national Breakfast Show, which is sponsored by eBay.

The media was planned and bought by PHD.

Capital’s new campaign will also reach listeners streaming music and podcasts via DAX, the digital audio advertising platform created by Global.

Adam Johnson, Director of Marketing at Global, said: “We wanted to capture the fun, energy and the personality of Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp with this campaign. What better way to do that than by putting our presenters and some of the biggest artists on the planet into the extraordinary world of your new favourite breakfast cereal. Launching this show across the UK is a huge moment for Global and this unmissable campaign will show millions of people across the nation where to find the hottest new music and the world’s biggest stars.”

Roman Kemp, Vick Hope and Sonny Jay are replacing all the regional breakfast shows on Capital stations in England, Scotland and Wales as first revealed by RadioToday last month.
