Synopsis:
At the start of 2016, Cheetos® was a category leader but facedpressure and needed to find new ways to grow. Our challenge was tounlock an entirely new reason for people to buy the product again.
Strategy:
Our audience was Millennial parents with children who are 8 to 12years old. Seventy percent of these adults wish they had more time toplay with their kids (source: Let’s Play survey, 2015). So we thoughtthere was an opportunity to help them play with their food.The museum fit perfectly with the Cheetos® brand’s mischievouspersonality. Much like how the artist Marcel Duchamp turnedeveryday objects into works of art, we elevated a cheesy snack to amasterpiece. Imagine a snack-food company encouraging customersto take a deeper look at their product, and even preserve it.The museum was curated in real time online, ensuring that anyone inthe country could participate. The campaign appeared in placeswhere we knew our audience went for entertainment “snack breaks”:Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.
Execution:
We launched with a series of online films featuring actual Cheetos®shapes that had been found that looked like Abe Lincoln, the Statueof Liberty, the Loch Ness Monster and more.These films drove consumers to visit CheetosMuseum.com, wherethey could explore the exhibit and submit their own shapes to win upto $60,000.To submit, you simply uploaded a photo of your Cheetos shape to beframed and exhibited in the online gallery. Fans were then invited toshare their submissions with their social networks and vote on theirfavorite shapes.The most unique submissions were featured in social posts,constantly generating new content throughout the campaign. We thencollected some of the most popular Cheetos from fans to showcase inactual galleries, including a live exhibit in New York City’s GrandCentral Station.
Outcome:
The Cheetos Museum was the most engaging social media campaignin the brand’s history.The 14-week campaign nearly doubled business goals and resultedin the strongest sales week in Cheetos history, and the brand’s shareof the cheese-puff market grew by 1.5 points.The campaign generated over 23 million video views and was atrending topic on Facebook for two consecutive days. It was featuredon the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, theTODAY show, Good Morning America and in USA TODAY, garneringover 1 billion earned-media impressions.The site received 1.47 millions visits, 525% higher than the Cheetosaverage. And 127,717 unique Cheetos were submitted—over fivetimes the anticipated goal.And in an unprecedented turn of events, a Cheetos snack shaped likeHarambe the gorilla sold for $99,000 on eBay, making our cheesysnack worth as much as an actual piece of art by Banksy.
Campaign Description:
No two Cheetos® snacks are alike. They’re made in a way that resultsin each one being completely unique. And every so often, they looklike something familiar. Like a seahorse. Or a cat. Or Abe Lincoln.So we turned our cheesy snack into a piece of art.We created the Cheetos Museum, featuring real Cheetos found byreal people that look like real things. It was the world’s first collectionof the most interesting Cheetos shapes in existence. Then wechallenged Americans to curate the exhibit by submitting the mostamazing Cheetos shapes they could find, sparking a nationwide huntfor the uncanny works of art in every bag.
