Despite the world being more connected than ever through technology and social media, many consumers have never felt lonelier. The creators of White Claw are doing something about that. 

Through its new global brand platform and U.S. ad campaign, White Claw is inspiring even more people to seek out genuine, real-world connections — and “Grab Life By The Claw.” 

“White Claw is inherently social, an elevated choice for connecting over drinks. It’s also the brand that consumers gravitate toward during the spontaneous, lighthearted moments that form bonds between new and old friends — those moments are more important than ever at a time when more people crave human interaction,” said Isabelle Sakai, global chief marketing officer at Mark Anthony Brands International, in a statement. “The White Claw brand exists to refresh social connection, and with this new platform and U.S. campaign we intend to inspire our fans to say ‘yes’ to getting out there and experiencing something spontaneous and inspiring together. ‘Grab Life By The Claw’ is a rallying cry that says whenever you have the opportunity to engage in a meaningful social connection, you seize it.” 

“Grab Life By The Claw” embodies the White Claw spirit of togetherness with a group of friends creating a meaningful connection while enjoying a White Claw Hard Seltzer Variety Pack. The hero 30-second spot airing in the U.S. features a charismatic protagonist on a mission to rebuild social connection and free his friends from the isolated, mundane moments in life by extending an impromptu invite to hang out together while enjoying White Claw Hard Seltzer. The spot ends with the group of friends sharing cans and swapping stories, illustrating how a White Claw occasion is for those seeking to refresh social connections and elevate everyday moments.  

White Claw partnered with its global creative agency of record, VCCP, to establish the new brand platform and worked with international award-winning director Björn Rühmann to direct the campaign spot.

“When White Claw launched in 2019, it disrupted the liquor category and became a symbol of the new ways people were getting together,” said Darren Bailes, global chief creative officer at VCCP. “You didn’t need a bar or a location, just good people, friends or strangers. This active socializing is much more important than the late night doom scrolling that too easily soaks up our time. Thankfully we all have a friend who snaps us out of our rut and gets us together with the promise of good times — that’s when the White Claw Variety Pack shows up. This campaign exemplifies the value of social connection, of ‘Grabbing Life By The Claw’ in everyday moments.”

The U.S. ad campaign is live now across multiple channels. Additional rollouts and activations will follow in the coming weeks.
