Strong Response

by Syd Briscoe


Trebor Mints: “Give Me Strength” - 65s

Trebor's latest campaign takes on the foibles of modern life... with considerable gusto. For every inconvenience - from man-spreading on the tube to unnecessary nudity at the gym - there's a muttered plea of "Give me strength", which inspires a surprising response.

It's an entertaining premise, particularly when seeing the whole campaign of short clips back-to-back so the laughter builds. Hipster serving styles, piss-poor parking, and pretentious fashion all find themselves victim to a minty battering ram - a power we'd very much like to harness in our own lives.
