Stella Artois, a brand known for its exquisite Belgian lagers, has unveiled it’s ambitious new “Let’s Do Dinner” campaign. Driven by the intent to rekindle the joy of sharing meals and conversations, the campaign stands out for its impressive blend of celebrity endorsement, consumer engagement, and a sincere commitment to social causes.

The ad campaign seeks to inspire individuals to gather around the dinner table and cherish the experience of sharing a meal. As part of the campaign, Stella Artois has planned the World’s Most Fascinating Dinner, hosted by celebrities Matt Damon, Zoe Saldaña, Jeremy Allen White, and Ludacris, all of whom star in the campaign’s star-studded commercial. This initiative aims to underscore the importance of connections formed around the dinner table and celebrates the joy of sharing food, stories, and Stella Artois.

At the heart of the campaign is the latest Stella Artois commercial, “Let’s Do Dinner.” The commercial begins with Zoe Saldaña asking a thought-provoking question: “If you could invite anyone to dinner, who would it be?” The ensuing discussion among the stars evokes a sense of anticipation and excitement as they invite consumers to join them at the World’s Most Fascinating Dinner. The commercial brilliantly combines a sense of exclusivity with the warmth of an invitation to every viewer.

This campaign marks one of Stella Artois’s most integrated endeavors in the past five years. By leveraging all channels to continue driving the brand’s message about the significance of connection over meals, Stella aims to re-emphasize the role of dinner as a cherished social event. Marcela Garcia, Vice President of Marketing for Stella Artois, aptly summarized the campaign’s intent as an effort to “pour life back into the table.”

In what can be seen as a masterstroke of experiential marketing, the World’s Most Fascinating Dinner offers consumers a chance to win a seat at an exclusive dinner party. Hosted by the campaign’s celebrity ambassadors and other global icons, this dinner promises a once-in-a-lifetime experience to connect with some of the biggest stars over a meal and Stella Artois beers.

To ensure that every consumer has a fair chance to win a seat at the table, Stella Artois has intricately woven the campaign into its packaging as well. Special edition 12-pack bottles and cans feature Stella’s celebrity partners and a QR code that leads to details on how to enter. This move is an innovative way to continue offline engagement and increase the campaign’s reach.

The “Let’s Do Dinner” campaign is also notable for its philanthropic undertones. The campaign celebrates Stella Artois’s partnership with Water.org, a nonprofit organization focused on providing access to safe water. This partnership resonates with the brand’s commitment to empowering people in need worldwide and further strengthens Stella Artois’s brand image as socially responsible.

Pros:

  • Star Power: Featuring celebrities like Matt Damon, Zoe Saldaña, Jeremy Allen White, and Ludacris will certainly attract a broad audience and boost the brand’s visibility. These stars also bring authenticity and excitement to the campaign, adding a personal touch that appeals to fans.
  • Innovative Approach: Inviting consumers to a unique, exclusive event like the “World’s Most Fascinating Dinner” is innovative and engaging. It creates anticipation and excitement, keeping the audience engaged for the campaign’s duration.
  • Social Impact: Stella Artois’ campaign promotes the brand and makes a social impact. Their partnership with Water.org exemplifies their commitment to supporting global causes, adding social responsibility and goodwill to their brand image.

Cons:

  • Exclusivity: While the exclusive dinner creates excitement, it also limits participation to a select few, potentially alienating other customers who may feel left out.
  • Focus Shift: The star-studded campaign may inadvertently shift the focus away from the product itself. The emphasis on celebrity participants might overshadow the brand and its core message.
  • Complex Execution: Integrating QR codes and online participation requires a certain level of consumer technological literacy. The campaign’s success may be limited if the target demographic is not technologically savvy or doesn’t engage with such marketing strategies.
