Famous celebrities such as Dwayne Johnson, Serena Williams, Micheal Jordan and Ronaldo are all apparently huge fans of Surreal’s cereal. But there’s a twist—these celebrities are actually just everyday people who happen to share famous names.

The billboards, adorned with bold typography and eye-catching pastel hues, feature larger-than-life endorsements from celebrities like Dwayne Johnson, Serena Williams, and more. However, upon closer inspection, a small copy reveals the truth: these endorsements are not from the actual celebrities but from regular folks who happen to share their famous names.

Surreal Saved On The Big Bucks

In addition to its viral success and creative brilliance, Surreal Cereal’s hilarious celebrity billboards have another hidden advantage—they save advertising money.

Surreal’s approach demonstrates that effective marketing doesn’t always require exorbitant budgets, but it can be achieved through inventive thinking and clever storytelling alone. These billboards bring a fresh and much required departure from every-day outdoor advertising. 

Surreal’s campaign was cleverly designed to align with the evolving preferences of modern consumers. People are increasingly drawn to authenticity, relatability, and brands that don’t take themselves too seriously. By embracing humor and clever storytelling, Surreal Cereal appeals to these preferences and establishes a unique brand identity that resonates with its target audience.
