charlieuniformtango and Raising Cane’s Celebrate National Iced Tea Day with Ice-T

charlieuniformtango announced a new campaign featuring eleven videos and four radio spots for Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, celebrating National Iced Tea Day earlier this month… with none other than the man himself, Ice-T.

Ice-T appears as both Unsweet and Sweet Tea in this fun new campaign as Todd Graves, founder and CEO of Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, tries to corral Ice-T as the tough unsweet tea guy vs the sweet tea guy. Sweet Iced Tea Guy charms the customers and Unsweet Iced Tea Guy insults them in the hilarious spots.

Let’s enjoy this sparring match between Sweet Iced Tea Guy and Unsweet Iced Tea Guy…

This was a full turn-key project for Tango – producing and creating the VFX that feature the main man, Ice-T, standing in iced tea cups. Tango and Raising Cane’s have partnered up before. “We value our relationship with Raising Cane’s. We always have a blast and look forward to working together,” Tango Executive Producer Hal Dantzler said.

Let’s enjoy one more of the spots…

Tango Producer Zachariah Cousineau added, “It’s such a pleasure getting to work with the team at Raising Cane’s because they have such a clear vision for their work, and their spots always have a unique charm to them. These spots with Ice-T are no different, and I can’t wait for everyone to enjoy them!”

“Water is for fishes and snitches!”… Let’s enjoy one last round with Unsweet Iced Tea Guy, played by Ice-T…
