Describe the objective of the promotion.
The new Orbit chewing gum bottle is bigger, but also more expensive. And that’s about all. How can we launch it on a crowded Czech market without any ATL support?
Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
Our campaign is based on a simple truth- we are all selfish. We noticed that leaving the new Orbit bottle on your desk creates a serious problem: Everyone keeps taking YOUR gum! So, we designed the creepiest and most disgusting bottle covers to scare off those people. On a special website you could choose from many “repulsive” designs or create your own.
Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
Thousands of people, from amateurs to professional designers took up the challenge. The project attracted the attention of top design sites and blogs in the Czech Republic and beyond. Over 1400 unique designs were created in just four weeks. The project is still continuing.
Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
Without any ATL support we managed to make the new Orbit bottle a real “talking point”. The bottle itself became the main promotional media.
The Promo / PR Ad titled CAN´T TOUCH THIS was done by Mark/bbdo advertising agency for product: Orbit Chewing Gum (brand: Orbit) in Czech Republic. It was released in the Jun 2009.
