History[edit]

Yop is a product originally from France, and is produced by the yogurt manufacturer Yoplait. Later Yop was marketed to different countries worldwide. Yoplait claims that Yop is the first drinkable yogurt in Canada.[11]

Advertising[edit]

UK relaunching in 2004[edit]

Yoplait made a well remembered advert when they re-launched Yop as the "smoother way to start the day" with a campaign through McCann-Erickson in April 2004. The campaign targeted teenagers and the spot featured teenagers with strong Jamaican accents singing a version of the Eddy Grant song, Gimme Hope Jo'anna, in their sleep. The song has been reworked into "Give me Yop" (Gimme Yop me mamma, Yop me mamma, Yop for when deree mornin' come) and the teenagers, who are seen asleep against a toilet-roll holder or propped up in the bathroom, are demanding that their mothers give them the drink.[12][13]

Featuring in Dofus[edit]

The yogurt Yop was used as an inspiration for Ankama programmers to create a race in the game Dofus, named Iop. Yop was one of the most commonly consumed drinks of the developers.
