Jalna promotes the yoghourt that impresses grumpy Greek grandmas

jalna greek yoghourtDairy brand Jalna has launched a new campaign for its Greek Yoghourt featuring a disapporving matriach being gradually won over by the versatility of the product.

The ad is part of a campaign for TV, magazines and online created by Sydney agency Grown Ups.

The campaign will soon be followed up by another tactical campaign for Jalna’s new proheart yoghourt.

  6. Oh my! I take that back. Apparently yogurt, yoghurt, yoghourt, yogourt, yaghourt, yahourth, yaghurd, yumgords, yoghurd, joghourt, and jogourt are all acceptable.

  12. “…same as the last 50 stereotypical surly Greek mother featuring tvcs.” I’m pretty sure that’s it but my hearing is pretty average.

  18. stereotype much?

    this is insulting

    just as bad as showing leprechauns to represent irish people or big fat mamas to show italian women

  22. There are so few roles for Greek/Aussie actresses these days, maybe next time the casting people should actually give the speaking role to an “real” greek actor……may have been a bit more convincing….BTW, it’s Thesaloniki, NOT Thesalonika????
