Dunkin' Integrated Ad - The Charli


As TikTok’s most-followed star, Charli D’Amelio is known around the world for her iconic dance moves…and her self-professed love for Dunkin’. Last week, Dunkin’ launched a new collaboration with the teen influencer, giving her favorite order—a Dunkin’ Cold Brew with whole milk and three pumps of caramel swirl—a name on Dunkin’s nationwide menu as “The Charli”.

Charli D’Amelio's Tik-Tok post featuring “Dunkin - the Charli” song garnered a whopping 27.1 million views in a single day, boosting the appeal of Dunkin Donut's cold brew coffee to young people everywhere.

And yet, the singer-songwriter of the viral post hasn't received any payment for her part in the blockbuster Dunkin' jingle, according to very reliable sources at ad agency BBDO. What's even more shocking is that Neysa Malone may only receive a maximum $100, according to the sources.

Dunkin's VP of brand stewardship Drayton Martin, along with her hired guns at BBDO, need to closely examine the doughnut chain's creative fees. For the sake of our industry, this shameful neglect and underpayment of people in the creative chain needs to be publicly sorted out. The advertising world must treat all contributors fairly from this day forward.
