Venus Williams And DJ Khaled Make A Pitch For Plant Life In New Silk Campaign

The two stars (and Groot!) make the case for plant-based protein.

Venus Williams And DJ Khaled Make A Pitch For Plant Life In New Silk Campaign

WHAT: Venus Williams and DJ Khaled do what they do best—tennis, Snapchat, and music, respectively—to pitch the advantages of Silk's plant-based protein drinks.

WHO: Silk, Fallon

WHY WE CARE: This might be the least tree-hugging ad campaign around vegetarianism we've ever seen. Not that there's anything wrong with getting crunchy, but partnering with sports and pop culture stars like Williams and Khaled—not to mention a sly Groot cameo—is an astute move to broaden Silk's appeal. The brand also plans to launch a "Path to Plants" digital series, featuring Williams and other plant advocates.
