in new video

As the world prepares for the epic final showdown of fire and ice, Kool-Aid Man is preparing for an epic showdown of his own — with a giant wall made of ice and snow.

A video of the legendary spokes-pitcher breaking the ice has been scoring likes since posting on Twitter yesterday. Created by Chicago advertising agency mcgarrybowen — along with Cutters and Flavor handling post-production and Another Country on sound — the 30-second, wall-shattering piece has generated more than 100K views in less than 24 hours.



The tweet containing the new Kool-Aid man video includes a call-to-action that urges viewers to make a choice: #ForTheIce or #ForTheFire. But why?

“There are few things Kool-Aid Man loves more than a good krash, especially when it comes to the biggest, iciest wall of them all,” says Rachel Drof, Marketing Director, Beverages, Kraft Heinz. “With the whole world watching, he just couldn’t resist the opportunity to bring some unexpected fun to people’s viewing experience.”

In the epic video, Kool-Aid Man is bringing down the most remarkable wall on TV.
