In this spot for Brisk tea, two teenaged boys jump from world to world through blue portals which take them from real life to a video game to and "old school Brisk commercial." What they are referring to is back in the 1990's Brisk had animated spots like this one featuring Joe Piscopo doing his best Frank Sinatra impersonation. "That's Brisk, baby!"
The 90's was also the era of MTV's Celebrity Deathmatch. Come to think of it, trying to turn Yep into a catchphrase seems like a very late 90's thing, too. It’s just like Whassup, which has now turned into Dilly dilly.
In addition to the broadcast there are also cutdowns for Instagram and Snapchat, and a custom Yep lens will allow users to animate Snapchat selfies. And there's also the obligatory influencer play with Lobosjr and Giantwaffle in a Brisk branded studio doing a two-hour Twitch stream today. I didn't watch. But I assume it involved them saying "Yep," a lot in an effort to turn the word into an ownable catch-phrase.
The more media changes, the more we do the exact same thing.
