New Vitamin Water Ads: Kid Cudi, Steve Aoki (DJ Kid Millionaire)
Vitamin Water’s latest ad campaign features Kid Cudi and Steve Aoki, also known as DJ Kid Millionaire.
Steve Aoki, hailing from Los Angeles, CA and Kid Cudi, most recently based in Brooklyn, NY are in Vitamin Water ads on YouTube.
The ads feature part animation and part live action footage. The drink is intended to appeal to those taking time for themselves, while getting in a little extra boost.
Will the sales pitch work? Brightly colored liquid choices for the drink may be discouraging water drinkers from trying the beverage, while Gatorade and soda connoisseurs may be turned off by the word “water” in the title.
