Cut+Run Editor Jonnie Scarlet Embraces LDV (La Dolce Velveeta)

For the latest evolution of La Dolce Velveeta, Velveeta and agency Johannes Leonardo collaborated with director Andreas Nilsson and editor Jonnie Scarlet in a campaign that features three characters enjoying Velveeta when and however they please.

In 2021, America was reintroduced to Velveeta by way of its first-ever dramatic rebrand in over 100 years. The brand was reestablished not only as a product, but as a lifestyle centered around enjoying life’s greatest pleasures: La Dolce Velveeta (LDV). LDV embraces what the brand really stands for: unapologetic, big, bold, supremely creamy, and relentlessly original.  In 2022, the brand set out to give fans real life examples of how to live LDV and that came to life through Velveeta Pinkies Out nail polish, Velveeta Veltini and the Velveeta Foodie Call—but this year it’s all about the attitude behind the lifestyle and that’s exactly what the newest campaign for La Dolce Velveeta embodies.

The 3x longform films with cutdowns will be running across TV, OLV and social. There will also be high visibility placements at launch in Times Square and on the Las Vegas Strip.

I'm not impressed at all pleased with the new advertising, nor am I impressed with the new direction Velveeta has taken. I dislike the new commercials. The commercials are little more than a bunch of weirdos eating a bowl of Velveeta mac & cheese. It's hard to imagine that's the message a brand wants to send to their consumers.. Our product is eaten by weirdos all around the globe. Buy our product & you'll fit in with the people you see in our ads! No, thank you!
