UK relaunching in 2004
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 de 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.
Featuring in Dofus
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. However, Iops are a race of complete idiots who like to get in brawls, and have practically no connection to the yogurt besides, of course, that neither the Iops nor the yogurt have noses.
Yop comes within and between countries in different bottle sizes. In some countries the bottle size is indicated in litres in others in grams. Smaller bottles are in some countries called: Yop baby (100 g France), Yop mini (180 g Belgium and France) and YOP & GO (300 g Belgium, 330 g France, 30 cl Switzerland)
