Why is this work relevant for for Music?

We leveraged rap music element and invited rappers to communicate with our TA.

Background

The proposition of SNICKERS is "You're not you when you're hungry", numerous weird acting happens when hunger strikes, and this often follows the sarcasms from friends. Of course, we didn’t miss this great opportunity to combine their behavior and the things they love with our brand.

Describe the creative idea

We invited the experts in dissing – rapper ØZI & JAYRoll to communicate our brand message through rap music and rappers that they love. During one month campaign period, consumers can visit our website to give sarcasms to their friends by the help of these two rappers in their own way of dissing.

Describe the strategy

We found that young people in Taiwan tends to show how good the relationship is between friends by giving sarcasms to each other, the more they do so the better they are. We also found that the music genre they love – rap music, shares the same critical element with their attitude toward friends, that is “diss”. Which is why we decided to leverage rap music & diss to earn these young people’s attention and love.

Describe the execution

We built a website as a platform where you can ask ØZI and JAYRoll to diss your friends. Just enter your friends name on this HUNGER BATTLE website. JAYRoll would help you to diss your hungry friends. And your friends could have ØZI on their side to diss you back. We brought dissing to the next level by combining our consumers’ behavior with their favorite rap music. We even printed the lyrics on SNICKERS package, made buying SNICKERS a move of dissing.

Describe the outcome

Young people flocked to this HUNGER BATTLE to diss their friends. This became a trending topic on social media. SNICKERS brand preference was uplifted! Sales increased 136%! Hungry? Grab a SNICKERS is now a line to show people how you diss!
