Leaving aside the fact that social ads have the potential to become the most annoying form of messaging known to mankind, Innocent itself is a classic example of one of those brands that start off in blaze of authenticity and oh-so differentness and then fall into the hands of cocky copywriters in Soho and rapidly deteriorate into pretentious, patronising vomitousness. (see also Leon, Ben & Jerry's, Gateway Computers...)
