Blog: Kopparberg goes to the dogs... but in a good way

James Wilmore | 19 December 2013

When in doubt, get the huskies out. That could easily be a PR mantra, for all I know. 

But Kopparberg seems to have used the sled-pulling hounds to good effect in a new campaign for its namesake Swedish cider brand. London commuters have this week been pulled across Kennington Park to help them on their way to work. 

The activity was all part of Kopparberg's campaign to launch its new Spiced Apple variant. 

A few years ago, the UK prime minister, David Cameron, used some huskies in the Arctic to show just how much he cared about the environment. The images have come back to haunt him slightly, as questions have been raised about his green credentials.  

I'm sure Kopparberg can avoid a similar back-firing.
