Irn Bru
'Mannschaft'
9 June 2024 60s
Going in hard.
by Jason Stone

This entertaining commercial for Irn-Bru sets a new benchmark for the amount of innuendo slipped into 60" of television. Riffing on the German word 'mannschaft' it lands gag after gag as a kilted Scotsman replies to the taunts of a young Teuton with a spirited exhibition of the optimism to which the advertised drink is laying claim on behalf of its nation of origin.

It's great to see Barr's letting The Leith Agency off the leash, and the agency taking full advantage to create a memorable, cheeky line of advertising which will gleefully resonate with Scottish football fans. (And, naturally, this review is written in the same spirit!)
