'Find Your Summer' in Winter and Eat Ice Cream, Magnum Says

Is it ever too cold for ice cream?

There are people who drink iced coffee in cold weather (raises hand), and the same holds true for enjoying ice cream. Why deny yourself just because the temp's below freezing and there's snow on the ground?

That's Magnum's take in a video and OOH campaign running in the U.K. and Turkey.

"Find Your Summer" encourages those in the thick of winter to find the tiniest sliver of sun and let the rays warm you while you enjoy some ice cream.

A :90 black-and-white video, created by LOLA MullenLowe and directed by Juan Cabral of MJZ, gives viewers the sense of dark days and cold nights with time spent under the covers and reclining in hot baths.

As The Dramatics' "In the Rain" plays, the sky opens up ever so slightly—just enough for people to savor the sunlight and Magnum ice cream.

Digital posters in Glasgow will identify specific locations, via weather data, where a moment or two of summer can be found. There's even a website for folks in France and the U.K. to find summer spots in real-time.

"Anchored in the brand's pleasure territory, the campaign aims to evoke the feeling of that ray of sunshine on long winter days, gently caressing you, mentally transporting you back to summer and awakening the desire to eat ice cream in that moment," Tomas Ostiglia, ECD at LOLA Mullenlowe tells Muse.

Now, go find your summer!
