Creative Execution
We launched ‘Help the Oversharers’ and we created a seriously clever way to stop teenagers in their tracks. The funniest and most ridiculous overshares our fans contributed via Twitter were fed directly into online media on websites where teenagers spend all their time. This was real public oversharing, and your ‘overshare’ could potentially become part of it. The banners drove viewers to the Help the Oversharers website, to play around with a whole load of other cool content and download our unique Overshare button, which lets you tell your mates when they’re oversharing. Digital outdoor media that also featured real ‘overshares’, Facebook messaging and a massively entertaining customisable video drove users to the site too.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
We were asked to come up with a way to make Pringles the snack of choice for impatient, frenetic 16-24 year-olds who thought the brand was uncool. We knew they were avid social media ‘sharers’, and Pringles is all about sharing, so we could have helped them share even more. But there were already loads of boring, inane tosh being ‘overshared’ online. So instead, what if we gave teenagers the chance to help friends stop sharing so much? To start sharing only the things actually worth sharing?
