Oreo Launches 'Play With Oreo' Campaign, Rolls Out Red Velvet Oreos for Valentine's Day French electro-pop duo Yelle score first spot

Lots of big brands are all about distilling their essence down to a single basic universal theme. For Coca-Cola, it's happiness. McDonald's is trying to go with loving. And now Oreo is zeroing in on the concept of play—in new ads and in consumers' lives.

The Mondelez brand on Tuesday launches a new campaign (still under the "Wonderfilled" platform) called "Play With Oreo." "Fans have always played with Oreo in a number of unique ways by twisting, licking, dunking, rolling, stacking and dipping the cookie. Now, the brand is on a mission to inspire imagination and play around the globe, not only with the cookie itself, but in consumers' everyday lives," Oreo tells us.

We'll see how that plays out. The campaign begins with a new animated "Wonderfilled" commercial from The Martin Agency featuring music by the French electro-pop duo Yelle. The ad, which breaks next Monday in the U.S. in 15- and 30-second formats, will run in more than 40 countries, including China, the U.K., Indonesia, France and Argentina.



Also great news for Oreo fans: Just in time for Valentine's Day, the brand is rolling out Red Velvet Oreos with cream cheese-flavored centers—the first new Oreo cookie flavor since the debut of the Golden OREO. They hit store shelves on Feb. 2 for a limited time, or you can visit OREORedVelvetRope.com for a chance to get an early taste.
