GLIDDEN brand launches ‘Real Is How We Roll’ campaign, speaks the truth about paint

Let’s get real: the paint industry is filled with complicated jargon, difficult-to-follow directions and “fake” paint news, putting pain into painting for consumers. GLIDDEN® paint by PPG is coming to the rescue of all do-it-yourself (DIY) painters, with the long-awaited declaration that "it's just paint." This spring, the Glidden brand is launching the “Real Is How We Roll” creative campaign to simplify paint industry “lingo” and provide consumers with clear, relatable messages on paint features to help them tackle upcoming paint projects.

The “Real Is How We Roll” campaign will promote the Glidden brand as the “anti-paint paint brand” – a disruptor in the paint category. Building on the Glidden brand’s “it’s just paint” attitude, the campaign features relatable scenarios and offers a candid perspective on situations that could potentially create stress for painters, to provide guidance that will ring true among DIYers and professionals alike.
