Whoosh, Spin & Float

Agency: BBH


The fun of Candy Crush Saga®, King’s smash hit match-three puzzle game, bursts out of phones and into the real world in a series of immersive films developed with BBH.

Players are at the heart of the campaign, with what they love about Candy Crush Saga - excitement, sweet victory and relaxation - dramatised in BBH’s three films, all directed by Joseph Mann through Blinkink.

While the action in the films is fantastical, King and BBH used as many real world effects and props as possible on the shoots, creating a sensory experience that is immersive and hypnotic. This included building physical versions of candy pieces, using trained acrobats for aerial sequences, and employing practical effects on set including lighting and wind, and working with FX experts to ensure the textures and explosive qualities of the iconic candies were just right.

The audio was created in collaboration with the in-house team at King, who composed bespoke tracks that are distinctive to each spot and reflect the emotion at the centre of each idea, but also feature sounds from the Candy Crush® world.

The first film, ‘Whoosh’, focused on achievement and starts with Candy Crush Saga players hanging out on a beach at sunset, only to find themselves propelled into the stratosphere on a column of candy pieces after some particularly triumphant matching. It is followed this week with ‘Spin’ and the third, ‘Float’, which breaks in November 2023.

This professional campaign titled 'Whoosh, Spin & Float' was published in United Kingdom in September, 2023. It was created for the brand: King, by ad agency: BBH. This Film medium campaign is related to the Gaming industry and contains 3 media assets. It was submitted 10 months ago.
