Insights, Strategy & the Idea
For the past few years, Cadbury has been all about joy. So for the festive season, Cadbury asked us to come up with a memorable piece of communication that shared moments of joy with all New Zealanders, encouraged public interaction, and in turn got the public sharing with us their own joyful moments.
So we decided to take a popular Christmas tradition of decorating a house with lights for the public’s viewing pleasure, and then gave the public and all passersby the chance to get involved and turn it into something even more magical.

Creative Execution
We took an ordinary house and covered it in decorative lights, then rigged the lights up to microphones so they could only be activated by the joyful act of clapping your hands.
The more noise the public made, the more spectacular the light display became.
A big ‘’ neon sign lit up, which saw the Cadbury glass and a half logo pour, and wristbands with the website written on them were given away encouraging the public to visit to witness other moments of joy, as well as to share their own.

Results and Effectiveness
Over 16,000 hands helped this house light up in the lead up to Christmas, and since launch has had over 45,000 unique visitors, along with over 1,200 videos and photos uploaded and shared.
Photos, newspaper reports, blogs and social media helped to spread the festive cheer even further, as we brought even more ‘Joy to the World’ this holiday season. Well, to New Zealand anyway.
