Describe the objective of the promotion.
Headline: Approaching your ‘secret crush’ is easy when you’re hiding behind a Cornetto! Challenge: Increase monthly sales of Cornetto ice-cream through a sampling promotion (that does not include discounting the product).

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
Culturally, Asian teens are not as forward as Western teens, so our concept had to enable them to make the first move without being impolite or rude. We launched the Cornetto 'Show-your-love-gang' a week before Valentine’s Day with TV, Radio , and on-ground support. Entering on www.cornettoclub.com or calling a call-centre , with a code found on every Cornetto wrap, teens could win the nation-wide service of the gang. Cornetto Show-Your-Love-Gang then surprised the winner’s secret ‘loved one’ and said all the things that the ‘secret admirer’ always wanted to say through songs, a presentation, and a bouquet of flowers.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
Cornetto Show-Your-Love-Gang became a popular idea and topic of conversations, and the buzz went beyond teenagers. 70,000 received codes from over Thailand within 4 weeks of launch. Sales increased over 2 % compared to last year. And because our promotion was seen across multiple channels in a fun, desexualized manner, Thai culture is no longer incompatible with expressions of love amongst teens.
