Wyler’s Light’s new creative campaign highlights the idea that plain water is just that — plain. The campaign was created by Denver-based agency Good Conduct.
Good Conduct began working with Wyler’s Light parent The Jel Sert Company in November of 2022, and this is the indie shop’s first creative campaign for the brand. It is also the first national ad campaign for Wyler’s Light, as the company sets its sights on drawing in new fans and building a long-lasting affinity among younger consumers for its refreshing sugar-free drink mixes.
The characters in the campaign are introduced living a drab, monochromatic existence, but as they add Wyler’s Light to their plain water, their boring world transforms dramatically through literal explosions of color, flavor and excitement. Shot using a high-speed Phantom camera, mesmerizing visual representations of the drink flavors engulf the characters, blowing them away with a new way to hydrate all day featuring great taste and additional essential vitamins but without the extra calories.
“Hydration these days is part of life, and many people have a goal of drinking up to a gallon of water a day to stay healthy. But honestly, it can be both a chore and a bore. So, we decided to lean into that by showing how trying something new can change the way you experience the world around you. We wanted to illustrate the idea that adding a little excitement and flavor can enhance people’s lives in a super-fun way, transforming them with a blast of color the same way that Wyler’s Light transforms the water in your water bottle,” said Rob Lewis, co-founder and executive creative director of Good Conduct.
“Visually and metaphorically the idea of these flavor blasts are perfectly linked to the Wyler’s Light brand promise. The lighthearted, fun and exciting creative really reflects what people get from our product. We want to be that boost that helps people get away from monotony in their lives. Even if it just starts with their water,” said Kyle Harrington, The Jel Sert Company senior director of marketing.
