67 653 individual pieces of gum sampled and thousands of happy Chappies fans.

Client Brief Or Objective
Chappies Bubblegum is an iconic South African brand famous for two things – its great taste and the interesting facts found inside its wrappers. Last year, Chappies ran a competition where fans could suggest their own facts to be printed on the wrappers. We needed to find an exciting way to launch these new facts to the South African public.

To launch the winning facts, we turned them into Edible Street Art across the country. Each mural was created using, on average,12 000 individual pieces of gum. Once the edible posters were complete, the public could help themselves.

The execution was the product. We essentially made an ad out of 12 000 pack shots, that could then be enjoyed by the public in the way the product is intended - by being chewed!
