In the throes of adulting, Matt & Molly discuss the finer nuances of elevating their pizza game while eagerly awaiting their Papa Murphy’s to bake in the oven.
Inspired by a quote from David Chang, “Millennials know how to make money...but they don’t know how to grow spinach,” Mekanism found that millennials spend 62% less time preparing food than their Gen-X counterparts. Yet according to a Papa Murphy’s audience study, 63% also say they really enjoy the idea of cooking.
At this stage in their lives, the Papa Murphy’s consumers’ who are often times too busy to prepare a full meal from scratch, want to feel the satisfaction of cooking a fresh, home-cooked meal while removing prep time from the equation.
“Papa Murphy’s is the perfect solution for the busy young consumer, who seeks an elevated pizza experience they just can’t get with delivery pizza,” said Laura Szeliga, Chief Marketing Officer of Papa Murphy’s. “We want everyone to know they can order the exact pizza they want, trust it was made from scratch that day, and take credit for making something fresh when they pull it out of their own oven. These new spots share these benefits in a fun, relatable way.”
“The idea was sparked by the simple truth that folks love to gather around a warm oven and discuss pizza gastronomy, much like a campfire. Matt & Molly are two characters who love pizza almost as much as they love each other. They’re in their transitional period, just bought their own home, love being in their kitchen and making food,” said Chief Creative Officer, Tommy Means of Mekanism. “We specifically chose improv actors and a director with experience directing improv actors to capture their conversations, as their beloved pizza heats up in the oven.”
In total, there will be 6 new main TV commercials, 10 radio spots and nearly 100 pieces of unique social content.
