Slim Fast’s brand-new TV ad campaign introduces us to the companies new celebrity weight loss ambassador Alexandra Burke.
The song featured in the advert comes courtesy of the American hip hop trio Salt-N-Pepa, with their 1987 released ‘Push It’. Taken from the groups album ‘Hot, Cool & Vicious’, the track eventually peaked at number 2 in the UK singles chart and number 19 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
If you weren’t around in the late 80’s but still find this song rather familiar, that could be because it also featured in the recent Aldi Challenge advert.
When I first saw this new ad for Slim Fast, I couldn’t help but find their choice of spokeswoman a little surprising, having not realised Alexandra would have ever needed or wanted to lose weight.
But hey, Slim Fast have chosen the singer and former X Factor winner to be their new weight loss ambassador and you can find out more about her story in this behind the scenes photo shoot video:
