Kool-Aid Man Gets a Makeover, Going All-CGI and Showing Off His Fabulous Flavored Pants


The world's most famous spokespitcher, the Kool-Aid Man, just got a glassy makeover to help promote the brand's new sugar-free liquid drink mix. The Kool-Aid Man, who's been around since 1954, was made over by Saatchi & Saatchi in New York and VSA Partners of Chicago. At 59 years old, he's now completely CGI, appears a bit slimmer, has a new voice—including an "expanded vocabulary and developed personality" (!)—and of course his own brand-new Facebook page.

Thankfully, he will still say, "Oh, yeah!" and burst through walls. But in the new commercials, he's also seen working out at the gym, buying flowers and wondering which of his 22 fabulous flavor "outfits" to wear. (Hey, is the Kool-Aid Man gay now, too? If so, that's kool with me—give him a big equals sign over his midsection and make it his new profile pic.) In June, Kool-Aid will also launch a Kool-Aid Man PhotoBomb mobile app, which will allow fans to superimpose images of Kool-Aid Man into their own photos.

"This is one of those fun projects we love to work on: Bring Kool-Aid Man back, better than ever," says Saatchi New York chief creative officer Con Williamson. "When we set out to do that, when we really dug in, we discovered that there's a lot to love in the evolution of this iconic character. We wanted people to get to know him a bit more. Kool-Aid and Kool-Aid Man are undeniably fun and positively bold. We wanted that happiness to shine through in his personality and attitude."
