"Canadian Club, a moribund brand that hadn't advertised for more than a decade, had no discernible positioning, and was on an inexorable slide to terminal uncoolness, has torn up the rule book with a retro-themed campaign under the rubric: "Damn Right Your Dad Drank It!" [...] In one fell swoop, a dying brand has suddenly cornered a whole new kind of cool." 1

- Jason Gagliardi, Executive Creative Director, Creative In-house2, in September 2009.

"The success of the 'Damn Right' campaign is due in part to the fact that it is relatable. No matter your generation, CC fans look at the images in the ads and immediately get the sense of timeless fun and classic masculinity -- both important qualities of CC itself. Inviting our fans to share their photos gives them the chance to show us their own representation of 'Damn Right' and to literally be part of the campaign."3

- Brian Stockard, Brand Manager, Canadian Club Whisky, in April 2009.
