Jackie Chan will feature in Campbell Soup's V8 campaign

Campbell Soup Co has launched an advertising campaign in the US for its V8 brand, featuring actor Jackie Chan.

Using the tagline, "Could've Had a V8", the campaign will comprise of two television advertisements, the firm said yesterday (3 October). The first - 'Balcony' - aired yesterday, featuring Campbell's V8 vegetable juice range. A second advert - 'Sidewalk' - will follow, featuring the V8 V-Fusion smoothie range.

The adverts will be followed by three additional spots and will be supported by print and online ads that compare V8 beverages to "other drink options".

Last month, Campbell Soup said that cost inflation and increased competition hit full-year profits at its beverage division.
