BBDO N.Y. Introduces ‘Dial-A-Snickers’

By Erik Oster Comment

As an extension of its ongoing “You’re Not You When You’re Hungry” campaign, Snickers will be replacing the Snickers parallelogram on some of its packaging with “Hunger Bars” which display common hunger symptoms such as “Loopy” and “Feisty.” To support the effort, BBDO New York launched an online spot called “Dial-A-Snickers.”

The spot imagines a call center where people can report friends and family who are suffering from such hunger symptoms. A call center representative then attempts to diagnose the problem and sends a delivery boy with the corresponding “Hunger Bar.” The spot ends by telling viewers “Your friends aren’t your friends when they’re hungry. Call them out with a Snickers hunger bar.” and sharing the #EatASnickers hashtag so viewers can call their friends out on social media. The “Hunger Bars” is a fun extension of brand’s popular “You’re Not You When You’re Hungry” and “Dial-A-Snickers” does a good job of brining it to life and providing (fictional) context. The spot is being promoted on Snickers’ social channels and a supporting print ad (see below) will roll out later this month.
