The commercial marks the launch of a new campaign called “Meet the
Ketchups,” which introduces the entire family of Heinz condiments. It
shows what happens when a stampede of “hot dogs” is unleashed on their
favorite Heinz condiments. “The stampede was a highly visual way for us
to remind people of the irresistible taste of Heinz,” says Michelle St.
Jacques, Vice President of Marketing – Condiments and Sauces at the
Kraft Heinz Company.

Got a New Mustard,” “Wiener Stampede” once again features the characters
Heinz Ketchup and Heinz Yellow Mustard, but now introduces even more of
the family, including Organic, Simply Heinz and Sriracha, and even Heinz

created its mustard campaign, Miami-based DAVID, to create this new
master brand campaign.
“Everyone knows and loves Heinz Ketchup, but they may not realize that
we offer a range of products for almost any taste,” added St. Jacques.

the year, so that everyone can see that great taste runs in the entire
The ad will further come to life with a fully integrated marketing
