Apology Press Conference Grand Prix
Food
Mars Japan
I&S BBDO Tokyo

Case Summary
Snickers needed to get young people to really engage with our campaign in 2012, not just to watch it on TV. So we took an additional approach. We cast the notorious Yuya Uchida, and then created an internet TV/PR event. The "Snickers Apology Press Conference Grand Prix" allowed us to create a conversation in the media and online around hunger, celebrity misbehavior, and Snickers. The campaign attracted over 2.7 million followers on SNS, earned over USD$1million in earned media coverage, and grew sales by 13 times the category average.

How Snickers Got on its Game in Asia
Multi Market – Products
Mars Foods

The campaign's success lay in overcoming shaky confidence from Asian management, entrenched local snacking behaviors and cultural irrelevance to create fame, drive growth at 2X times the category, increase market share by over 10% across the region, and create the fastest growing markets for Snickers globally.
