Cactus Kid to star in Oasis campaign by Mother

LONDON - Mother will tomorrow launch a TV campaign for the soft drink Oasis featuring a girl who runs off with a human/cactus hybrid.

The "Run, Cactus Kid, Run" campaign will retain the successful "for people who don't like water" strapline.

It comprises three 30-second TV spots, plus a fourth ad that will appear online with alternative endings on which users can vote.

Cathryn Sleight, the marketing director at Coca-Cola GB, said: "This year's campaign builds on the brand's irreverent humour, designed specifically to appeal to the twentysomething target audience."

The campaign will also feature an extended cinematic trailer and outdoor ads, which evoke classic movie posters.
