Snickers

The Hungry Games

Agency: We Are Blossom

Description

Snickers is a brand build on strong TV advertising, but if your target audience doesn’t watch TV anymore, you must do something different. So, we create a social media campaign that raises awareness and market penetration for the Snickers brand. Off course in-line with the international “you're not you when you're hungry” brand theme. The target audience is the mobile generation. Youngsters in the age of 16-24 that are always online. They swipe, (dis)like and want to be constantly entertained on their phone’s. Although they like some brands, they usually hate it when they interrupt their socials.
You’re not you when you’re hungry! How do we prove this to the youngsters? By hijacking their thumb and "hacking" the popular Instagram Stories.
Using the hold-screen-to-pause mechanism, we created 3 cool games that where impossible to win. To win (for an indefinitely moment), you had to pause the video at the exact right moment. “Great job! Don’t let go” appeared in your screen. Leaving you wondering what will happen next. Because obviously, you need your finger again. When lifted, the video automatically continued and you were confronted with the inevitable denouement "You lose", quickly followed by "Be a winner, grab a free Snickers". Making sure you felt like a champ and your efforts were rewarded with a Snickers (which you could claim after you swiped up).
Our goal was a distinctive and uncompromising campaign that stands out. That’s why we’ve chosen the nostalgic pixel art style that binds the campaign and is realized by Ivan Dixon. This animator from Melbourne has made his mark with work for The Simpsons, Cartoon Network, Disney and Warner Bros.
