Hula Hoops launches £4.5 million “When it comes to the crunch” campaign created by BMB
KP Snacks is supporting Hula Hoops with a new TV campaign created by BMB.
Backed by a £4.5 million marketing campaign, BMB’s step-changing work marks a new strategy for Hula Hoops, in a push that will appeal to more households across the UK than ever before.
Breaking on 16th February, the campaign launches online first, kicking off with a 30" film which then airs on TV from 2nd March, with additional online content supporting through the duration of the campaign.
The idea focuses on the national obsession of eating Hula Hoops off your fingers mixed with the national obsession of getting out of things you don’t want to do. The first execution in the campaign features a comedic confrontation between a cashier and a bank robber.
The robber bursts in and tries his luck only to be met by a cashier with Hula Hoops on her fingers who delivers the line, “Sorry love. I’ve got my hands full”. From this point, the robber’s day takes a turn for the worse. The ad ends with the line “When it comes to the crunch…it has to be Hula Hoops”.
Directed by Jim Gilchrist, the film brings a comedic twist to the tense and high-octane world of bank robbery, bringing a bit of Hollywood to Wood Green through the anamorphic lens of the Director of Photography, Tim Maurice-Jones, of Lock Stock and Snatch fame.
The campaign will run initially for two months in February/March, returning for a further burst in August/September. This is the biggest ever campaign for Hula Hoops with TV, Social, Digital activity and in-store events all taking place across these periods. The main 30" spot will be followed by series of extra scenes, also shot by Jim, which reveal to viewers what happens after the robber is outwitted by the cashier.
