Hold this Bar

Agency: Aktuellmix


How to leave the gringo image behind and be part of the conversation in the Brazilian Internet? Owning it. Hershey’s related its chocolate bars to a popular expression used in one of the greatest hits of the 90’s in Brazilian music. The slang ‘’hold this bar’’ is the chorus off ‘’Cheia de Manias’’, by Luiz Carlos. Despite its huge success the song didn’t have a clip, so Hershey’s decided to create an official one in the rhythm of reggaetón. And proposed a challenge to find out who’s ‘’the best bar holder in Brazil’’: how long can someone hold the computer spacebar? The website had hours of exclusive branded content and a prize in gold bars.

This professional campaign titled 'Hold this Bar' was published in Brazil in May, 2018. It was created for the brand: Hershey's, by ad agency: Aktuellmix. This Digital medium campaign is related to the Confectionery, Snacks industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 5 years ago.
