Keef Kef

The Israeli Chocolate Bar That’s Fighting the Corona Virus

Agency: Saatchi & Saatchi


In a world where all government systems and experts are busy fighting the Corona virus, what can a chocolate brand do to contribute to the fight? Well, let’s be honest not very much. But that didn't stop Elite’s “Keef Kef” brand from playing its humble part.
Elite chocolate’s “Keef-Kef” bar is an iconic choclate bar every Israeli has grown up on. Its name is based on two words which taken together mean fun. But when you break up the combination, you’ll notice that the first word is “Keef” - the Hebrew word for “High Five”.
So right after the Israeli Ministry of Health released the Corona coping guidelines that included a ban on hand shakes and high fives of all kinds, we embarked on a billboard and social media Real Time Marketing campaign. We deleted the first half of the brand’s name (“Keef” which means “highfive”) and left only the fun (“Kef” in Hebrew slang).

This professional campaign titled 'The Israeli Chocolate Bar That’s Fighting the Corona Virus' was published in Israel in March, 2020. It was created for the brand: Keef Kef, by ad agency: Saatchi & Saatchi. This Integrated medium campaign is related to the Confectionery, Snacks industry and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted about 4 years ago.
