New Ad Campaign for Mistic
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Mistic here has launched two new ad campaigns that include radio spots incorporating slam poetry and hip-hop with classical English poetry, and an outdoor creative focused around the street culture of New York City's Soho district using billboards and mobile trucks.
In the radio spots, different artists who have rewritten three classic English-language poems, including Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven," read the new version using slam poetry-style language and rhythms. Jazz and hip-hop music are piped into the ad to simulate the venues where slam poetry is usually performed. The campaign supports three different Mistic beverages -- Mistic Zotics, Mistic Tropicals and Mistic Carafe.
In addition, Mistic's outdoor creative is an edgy new campaign that allows Mistic consumers to "Go Bold" by participating in unconventional challenges and a variety of activities, including confessing their boldest act, entering a slam poetry contest or partaking in a racy bikini switch.
The "Go Bold" campaign supports the entire range of Mistic products and is scheduled to take place in 11 markets across the country.
In addition to the challenges, Mistic is sponsoring a series of concerts and festivals featuring some of today's hottest bands, as well as a giveaway of a range of branded and nonbranded prizes and premiums. The promotion will be supported by radio, print and point-of-sale materials.

Lisa Kudrow for Aquafina
PURCHASE, N.Y. -- Aquafina's new ad campaign, featuring actress Lisa Kudrow from the TV sitcom "Friends," promises consumers nothing.

The campaign features five new TV spots, the first three of which were rolled out in late June.
Dr Pepper Hip-Hop Promo
PLANO, Texas -- Dr Pepper has launched a four-month tour designed to reach urban teens with hip-hop music.
The two-year-old program attempts to reach its teen audience through spontaneous street concerts and appearances at record release parties, nightclubs, street festivals, parades and retail stores.
The tour has brought hip-hop music to 11 urban settings since early last month, including New York, Memphis, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Washington and Baltimore.
It was co-sponsored by Reebok, which launched a new line of urban lifestyle clothing last month. Staffers wearing Dr Pepper/Reebok branded clothing distributed brand-identified products and promoted a drawing held in each market for two Reebok wardrobes.
The tour was publicized locally using posters and flyers at key retailers, parks, community centers and popular teen hangouts.
