The Campaign

THIS SUMMER SNICKERS LAUNCHED A BRIGHT NEW TACTICAL “HUNGER BAR” CAMPAIGN WITH THE "WHO ARE YOU WHEN YOU’RE HUNGRY?" SLOGAN AND AMUSING “HUNGER SYMPTOMS” WRITTEN ON THE BARS INSTEAD OF ORDINARY “SNICKERS”. TOGETHER WITH “HLEB”, A WELL-KNOWN MUSIC BAND, WE CREATED 5 MUSIC CLIPS: ONE NEUTRAL AND FOUR BASED ON THE BARS: “SLOW”, “WEIRD”, “DEPRESSED”, “WILD”, CORRESPONDING TO THE HUNGER TRAITS. USING SHAZAM, WE ANNOUNCED THE NEW VIDEOS’ RELEASE STRAIGHT ON THE PACKAGING. THEN WE LAUNCHED AN INTERACTIVE VIDEO ON A SEPARATE LANDING PAGE WHERE USERS COULD SWITCH BETWEEN OUR FIVE CLIPS SYNCHRONIZED FRAME-TO-FRAME.

Creative Execution

1. USING SHAZAM, WE ANNOUNCED THE RELEASE OF NEW VIDEOS STRAIGHT ON THE PACKAGING. BEFORE THE RELEASE OF THE INTERACTIVE CLIP BY THE HLEB BAND, USERS HAD A CHANCE TO WATCH 5 EXCLUSIVE VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE USING SHAZAM PHOTO AMPLIFICATION BY POINTING THEIR MOBILE CAMERA AT SNICKERS. EACH TRAIT MENTIONED ON THE BAR CORRELATED WITH A SPECIFIC VIDEO. PROMO POSTS IN SOCIAL NETWORKS ANNOUNCED THIS MECHANICS. 2. THEN WE LAUNCHED AN INTERACTIVE VIDEO ON A SEPARATE LANDING PAGE (HTTP://HLEB.BAND/), WHERE USERS COULD SWITCH BETWEEN OUR FIVE CLIPS SYNCHRONIZED FRAME-TO-FRAME. THE CLIPS (NORMAL, WILD, GLOOMY, WEIRD, SLOW) WERE SHOT BASED ON THE MOTION CONTROL SYSTEM — THE CAMERA HAD A CERTAIN ROUTE ENABLING A SINGLE-FRAME CLIP WITHOUT CUTS. THIS RESULT ALLOWED TO CREATE AN INTERACTIVE FORMAT, GIVING USERS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SWITCH BETWEEN OUR FIVE CLIPS SYNCHRONIZED FRAME-TO-FRAME. THE VIDEO WAS ALSO SUPPORTED BY VK PROMOTED POSTS. FRAME-TO-FRAME.

Dreamy and slightly surreal, Ice Skaters for Ikea from CZAR Brussels

Ice Skaters shows the dreamy and slightly surreal spectacle of a middle aged couple spinning and gliding on the polished wood floors of an elegant, high-ceilinged apartment in their socks. With the tagline 'Bring life into your living room' it is a beautifully crafted advert creating a warm, nostalgic mood for the brand, Ikea. It won Bronze at Eurobest in 2018 for production company CZAR Brussels. Director, Joe Vanhoutteghem and producer, Lander Engels talk to Eurobest about the experience of creating the work. 

How do you make an idea work when your entire media budget is pulled, a week before launch?

The team at Marvelous Moscow have the answer. CCO, Artem Sinyavskiy shares the story of how their work for Skylink, 'The 1 MB Campaign', went on to win Bronze at Eurobest in 2017, despite the media budget being pulled a week before the launch of the campaign.

The gin, the city, the song and the search for the special colour of Seville

PS21 Madrid, the creative transformation company set up by founder of creative agency dommo Agustín Vivancos, was in its first year when the team began work on Searching for the Special Colour of Seville. It was a piece of work that would not only go on to win the agency’s first major award, Bronze in Creative Data at Eurobest in 2018, but would also become part of Seville’s cultural heritage. We hear how the idea came to life from Strategy Director, Sergio Garcia and Executive Creative Director, Victor Blanco.
