Your card has been declined, it's ok, your Soul Sisters have got your back

While belting out songs, they come to the rescue of a woman whose card is declined in a supermarket in one of the ads.  

In another, they encourage a woman whose work presentation doesn't go as planned. They also act as personal cheerleaders for a swimmer.

The Soul Sisters celebrate you for beating your own personal best time

The new series is, however, not limited to women. It is also features a young man trying to come out to his father.

The series, which consist of six 45-second clips - is a departure from Chicken Licken's usual long-format film style ads.

Not the colour you were going for. Soul Sisters encourage to wear it anyway

“Imagine if you had backup sisters who popped up whenever you needed them. It was exciting to create an ad that celebrates women but still in a quirky, Chicken Licken way,” the company's agency, Joe Public United, said.

The tunes were composed by classically-trained composer Adam Howard, who brought the message home with a 60s-inspired theme reminiscent of The Supremes.

“Because our concept was based on soul singers, we had to make sure our music was authentic".
