Contexta launches the AC/DC barbecue anthem for Coop

With the original song "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC, Coop and Contexta are cheering on grill-crazy Switzerland and continuing the Tsch-Tsch campaign.


For the third time, Coop has teamed up with the Bernese communications agency Contexta for the barbecue season. The jointly developed campaign strategy remains the same: the main thing is grilling with a focus on barbecue food, on self-actualization, on activation.

This summer, however, Coop and Contexta are turning up the barbecue flame once again. And they're doing it with the barbecue anthem "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC. A cross-media campaign was created around this legendary original song, from TV commercials and bumper ads to POS appearances in Coop stores. With the barbecue anthem, Coop cheers on barbecue-crazy Switzerland and says one thing above all: Don't be a spectator - be a doer!

Coop butchers are playing a central role in the campaign again this year. As experts, they not only stand for Coop's meat expertise, but also directly invite customers to visit the Coop butcher's shop with promotions and personal advice.
