to Cut the Drama,
Not the Taste
When It Comes
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! is launching its new “Spread No Drama” brand campaign for 2019. The new and entertaining campaign addresses the ongoing habit of dramatic internal dialogues surrounding what to eat and not to eat and positions the plant-based brand as a simple solution that cuts the food drama, not the taste.
The Amsterdam, Netherlands-based company tapped Golden Globe-nominated and SAG Award-winning actress, producer, director, entrepreneur, philanthropist and L’Oreal Paris Global Brand Ambassador Eva Longoria to star in multiple comedic short-form videos aimed at inspiring people to reduce food drama and encourage a lifestyle focused on balance. The creative centers around her inner dialogue in the form of several hilarious and over-the-top “Mini Eva” characters.
“Humor and fantastical scenarios are the brand’s DNA,” said Bernice Chao, Senior Brand Manager, Upfield. “We wanted someone who could bring the ‘Spread No Drama’ creative to life with a dose of unexpected humor and we couldn’t think of a funnier actress than Eva Longoria. Eva also is the epitome of a strong confident person who practices a balanced lifestyle.” Watch the new 30-second spot below:

“I’ve used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! for years because I enjoy the taste,” said Eva Longoria. “I instantly fell in love with the concept of ‘Spread No Drama’ as soon as I read the script.”
The campaign propels I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! into 2019 with an entirely new and fully fleshed creative ecosystem that features hundreds of pieces of creative, ranging from mass awareness plays (via Eva Longoria), to culinary credibility builders and peer-to-peer reviews (via lifestyle and foodie influencers). The brand’s new creative ecosystem was ideated and built around one simple principle: each creative asset is required to play a thoughtful role in bridging awareness (top of mind) and action (sales lift).
While Longoria’s content entertains and creates awareness for “Spread No Drama,” the Influencer content offers consumers real life applications with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!, aimed at demonstrating the versatility of the brand in baking, spreading and cooking. The campaign will be featured across various digital channels, print, in-store, radio, as well as all of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!’s owned social channels and its newly designed website.
