Results and Effectiveness
This prompted a lot of ice cream sales, where even the packaging carried the message home, with a final wipe of a serviette after a most satisfying experience. By giving the entire Sinnfull campaign the voice of the product itself, the media use stood out, wherever it touched the potential customer. And by flirting with people intimately, directly…closely, the best result was that the message also made the day of the recipient.

Creative Execution
Close to each store, foot traffic is high and so provided the perfect ground for starting naughty conversations… The ice creams started having a voice on local radio, bringing different flavours to the very tongues of potential customers. Then posters nearby added to the intrigue, flirting and fun. Then, much to customers’ delight, when they returned to their parked cars from the beach or shopping, they found a little note on their cars, written in person, by an ice cream. The note was an invitation for an illicit rendezvous.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Sinnfull Ice Cream, boutique ice cream stores launched a new range of exotic flavours. In preparation, they needed to speak to their potential customers every day, individually, unforgettably and spontaneously. On the tiniest of budgets. Since most adults feel pretty guilty about eating ice cream, it made sense for the ice creams to sympathise. So we turned every exotic flavour into a personality, and every media became the voice of the ice cream itself. Confessing their own guilty desires the Sinnfull ice creams brazenly refused to be ashamed of wanting what they want: to pleasure you.
