Describe the objective of the promotion.
Re-ignite interest in M&M’s and create new news for the already well-established brand and chocolate icon.
Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
Everyone understands that the M&M’s brand has always been about the M&M’s coloured shells. In fact, the M&M’s characters are defined by their colours. Our idea was this; to shock the M&M’s loving world by removing what they’re known for, their shells.
Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
Still barely halfway through, visitors to the website are spending an average of 4.5 minutes engaging with the brand and sales are increasing steadily, with weekly results now beginning to eclipse previous successful promotions.
Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
We convinced a reluctant Mars to change their iconic coloured candies and develop a nude (shell-less) version of the M&M. The promotion itself was simple. Find the nude M&M’s.
A TVC told the story of a camping trip where the M&M’s ended up nude. The story continues on the website. Here, consumers enter unique pack codes to win (over $100,000). Online videos take us in search of Crispy M&M’s shell. Red M&M has put it on ebay with a direct link through to the auction.
Stripping venticular outdoor, nudie paparazzi shots in magazines, nudie calendars and nudie pens supported the promotion.
The Promo / PR Ad titled BARE ALL was done by Clemenger BBDO Melbourne advertising agency for product: M&ms (brand: M&M's) in Australia. It was released in the Jan 2010.
