Comedian Jean Kittson tells Australians ‘the way it should be’ in Squeaky Gate Olive Oil ad

Australian-owned family business Squeaky Gate Olive Oil has turned to Australian writer, actor and comedian Jean Kittson for its new campaign

The television commercial features Kittson – best known for her role as a commentator on ABC’s The Big Gig -ngoing off script as she attempts to tell viewers about the product.

Created by Communicado, the campaign will run across TV and social media.

Nicole Puhar, brand manager at Conga Foods, said in a statement: “This philosophy has already resonated with consumers who are passionate about the brand and what it represents. That is as much a testament to the Aussies who are supporting us as it is to the quality olive oils we are proud to bring to the market.

“While the production of olive oil in Australia is serious business, humour allows our story to be told with personality, granting license to be a bit cheeky and achieve cut through and engagement for our modest budget.”
