Octavia Spencer narrated Beyond Meat’s first-ever TV ad, which premiered last night.
Plant-based meat company Beyond Meat debuted its first TV ad, starring American actress, author and producer, Octavia Spencer, as its narrator.
The commercial, titled ‘What If We All Go Beyond’, features the actress asking “what if” animals were taken away from the dining table and provides the benefits of reducing meat consumption and animal agriculture as well.
Beyond Meat’s ad debuted on Spectrum Sportsnet last night during the Los Angeles Lakers vs Utah Jazz basketball game.
“I’m really proud to be a part of this movement and love that Beyond Meat is inviting us all to imagine a brighter future with the simple question: ‘What If We All Go Beyond?’” said Spencer.
“I see the power of collective change happening all around us, and the future of our food is no different. My health is the reason that I’ve started eating more plant-based meat. Beyond Meat’s products taste so good, it made the transition a welcomed change. I can’t wait to share the experience I’ve had with more people and invite them to try going beyond, too.”
The Self Made star also mentioned how it was for health purposes. She had started eating more plant-based meat and is even a brand ambassador for Beyond Meat.
The actress also teased the advertisement by tweeting “What if we all…..” on Sunday. She also thanked her friend, Patrick Goudeau, on Instagram, for introducing her to beyond meat sausages at a “Saturday cookout”. The author also mentions. Although she is not going vegan, she is into Beyond Meat’s product line. And she will be cutting her animal protein intake “considerably” — she is “going beyond”.
It was also early this month that Beyond Meat invested in an NBA-star founded initiative, The Social Change Fund, for the Black community and donated over a million of its burgers in a plan to achieve a “healthier America”.
