Velveeta pokes fun at princess-y eating in spot for Royal Wedding-themed 'Crowns & Cheese'
Renamed 'Shells & Cheese' comes with a gold plate spoon in honor of Meghan and Harry
May 15, 2018
Velveeta is among the many brands that this week are pushing a Royal Wedding-themed product--and it's made a funny royalty-themed ad to go with it.
The Kraft Heinz brand has renamed its Shells & Cheese product as "Crowns & Cheese" for the big day on May 19. The crown-shaped pasta is packaged alongside the original Shells & Cheese and a gold-plated spoon in a gold foil box, and Velveeta will be offering the boxes to the first people to enter on www.RoyallyTreatYourself.com, while supplies last.
To promote Crowns & Cheese, agency David Miami has fun with the idea of eating like a princess in an online spot. In the video, a Meghan Markle/Kate Middleton brunette lookalike (well, kinda) is given lessons on "how to act like a royal princess." This apparently involves sitting demurely, wearing long skirts and stupid hats, no selfies, drinking very little and eating even less. "F*** this," says our heroine eventually, before going on to tuck into a bowl of Crowns & Cheese. The tagline is "Who wants to be a princess, when you can eat like a queen?"
