icelandfoods – Keeping It Real with Iceland

Share This

Why we love it:

The execution here isn’t 100% (our joke writers would have a thing or three to say about the flagrant disregard for comedic rhythm). However, in this comparison gag, Iceland manages to poke fun at rival supermarkets and those who shop at them in a brand-safe way.

In doing so, they not only position themselves as the go – to supermarket for shoppers who want to “keep it real” (not to mention save money versus buying a “grazing board”); they also trigger the Share and Declare effect, with commenters happy to have an opportunity to identify themselves as members of the Iceland Mums in – group.

(Quick note for those outside the UK: the emphasis on “mums” in the post is a reference to Iceland’s slogan, “That’s why mums go to Iceland.” But we agree, it’s not very 2023…)

What you can learn from it:

Whatever your niche, we guarantee there are multiple out – groups to your audience’s in-group. (For example, are your audience connoisseurs of fine coffee? Out-groups would include tea drinkers, and coffee drinkers who are happy with instant.)
