Pringles pop user generated content onto DOOH to promote Easter on-pack promotion

Kellogg’s owned snack brand Pringles is launching a UK-wide digital out-of-home (DOOH) campaign to encourage participation in its Easter on-pack promotion “Take a Bite and Win a Flight”.
Players are invited to snap and share a picture of themselves enjoying their favourite Pringles on social media for the chance to win a trip to a European destination every hour throughout every day of the month-long promotion.
The DOOH campaign has been designed to amplify the social media campaign and will harness the real-time capabilities of digital out-of-home by featuring the social photos of each hourly winner in real-time on panels close to point of purchase.
The campaign runs until 16 April on six-sheet digital panels outside key Tesco and Asda stores nationwide. OOH campaign planning is by location marketing specialist Posterscope and Carat with creative produced by ZEAL.
Emily Dutton, Assistant Brand Manager, UK & I Pringles, said: “Easter is a time for friends and family to get together and celebrate, and Pringles plays a big part in this sharing occasion. Our “Take a Bite and Win a Flight” adds another sharing opportunity into the holiday, and with our winners celebrated on advertising panels close to purchase points, we want to encourage shoppers to grab a tube and get involved.”
Lee Mabey, Agency Strategy Director at Posterscope, added: “Research has shown that people are more likely to enter a competition if they feel that they have a real chance of winning. Our ability to feature real-time, user-generated content from our competition winners on panels right next to purchase points, taps directly into this and will help to drive interest and desire for this fantastic Pringles promotional.”

Hidden Camera ‘Good Egg’ Hunt

The co-op are on the hunt for a good egg this Easter. Using hidden cameras the Co-Operative has been looking to reward the nations good egg’s for their good behavior.
The online Easter campaign hopes to inspire good behavior in people, with multiple hidden camera videos showing Brits in need of help and being rescued by strangers.
It prompts some self reflection as viewers are left reassuring themselves that they too would be a good samaritan in these situations. The collection of short videos have appeared as promoted content on Instagram and Facebook and are combined with a social media campaign, which encourages people to nominate friends and family who they deem as ‘good eggs’.
Sam Walker, the senior marketing manager at the Co-op, said: “As a community retailer, we wanted to show that people of all ages can make someone’s day without giving up lots of time or money – the simplicity of one kind gesture can have a huge impact.
“We hope this video encourages people to nominate their own good eggs and give them the recognition they deserve.”

Smartphone-Assisted Easter Egg Hunt is Latest Use of iBeacons

Fabergé‘s Big Egg Hunt, which benefits two nonprofits, Studio in a School and Elephant Family, is a fun event brightening up the streets of New York for Easter and an experiment in using iBeacon technology in public non-retail spaces. Over 275 egg sculptures, each about 2.5 feet tall, have been scattered around New York City, and each has been decorated by a well-known artist, photographer or designer: participants include Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Diane von Furstenberg, Warby Parker and Naeem Khan.
Each egg is up for sale, and those who ‘check in’ at the egg can bid on it using the egg-hunt app. The location of a specific egg will remain a secret until 10 people have checked in by that egg. After that, the egg’s location will appear on a public interactive map. The intensified bidding that will ensue will benefit the two above-named organizations. Users of the app are also entered to win more than $30,000 worth of Fabergé jewelry.
Nomi, a startup organization that works with iBeacons, helped put the technical aspect of the project together. As they told Fashionista, it was an opportunity for them to prove to their other clients that the iBeacon platform can withstand unusual deployments.
The eggs will be gathered together in a free exhibit at Rockefeller Center on April 18-25; they will be auctioned off on the 22nd, with the egg hunt ending on April 26th.
