Menulog, in support of local musicians, has launched a rework of Snoop Dogg’s Did Somebody Say track.

Starring Baker Boy, Kirsten Salty, D'Arcy Spiller and Big Twisty, the 60” master track will air October 17.

It is part of Menulog’s new integrated campaign Everyone Delivers Differently, which also includes 2 x 30” TVCs that each feature two artists and two 15”s with one artist each.

The campaign rolls out across broadcast, social, digital, CRM and PR. It was created and produced by Mushroom Creative House (part of the Mushroom Group). Melbourne producer Jerome Farah added his expertise to the full collaboration and hero track, as well as the individual artist tracks.

Mushroom Group chief executive Matt Gudinski says the campaign is a platform for young talent.

“We’re excited by the opportunity to give some of the country’s most exciting young talent a platform with the new Menulog campaign,” says Gudinski.

“At a time when Australian artists are struggling, it’s great to see a brand willing to support the local music industry rather than hunt down an international superstar.”

The campaign hopes to inspire other brands and businesses to include more local talent, particularly amid discourse around the lack of Australian talent in broadcast.

Menulog head of brand Fiona Bateman says the app-based food delivery service wants to support the music industry.

“The team in London did a phenomenal job on the Snoop work. It was universally loved, and rightly so. But the context is very different now. Everyone is only too aware that the local music scene has been decimated by Covid, so it was really important for us to invest the campaign budget locally and hero local artists,” says Bateman.

“We wanted to do everything in our power to support the industry and give the artists a chance to build new audiences.”

Mushroom Creative House COO Jess Tarpey says Snoop set the bar high.

“Following Snoop was always going to be an insanely high bar, but we collaborate and work with artists every day to ensure that our creative output is both authentic and unique,” says Tarpey.

“We wanted to bring in the artists’ individual personalities, as well as a bit of local Australian flavour, whilst also ensuring the final output formed a cohesive whole. Hopefully we’ve managed to achieve that.”

Speaking to the campaign theme Everyone Delivers Differently, the track and broader campaign celebrate individuality, particularly when it comes to cuisine. In lyrics written by each artist, Kirsten Salty shares her mandate for steamed buns with no pickles and fries in ice cream, while D’Arcy Spiller spills her love of a whole fish, Vietnamese style.
