It’s not me, It’s you.
We worked again with Greenpeace Nordic, campaigning together to put pressure on local consumer brand, Cloetta, who had documented links to rainforest deforestation. We wanted them to clean up their palm oil supply chain. The company was unwilling to communicate on the matter, so we needed to take more severe action.
The goal was to create a website where we spoof brand a famous chocolate company. We use brand jacking and humor to engage people, to expose this irresponsible act of the company and how it affects the environment. The idea was to use a mock relationship test to show that the relation between the company and the consumer is deteriorating, because the company hasn’t been truthful about its activities.
When the consumer finds out the facts, after taking the test, he/she emails the company to ask it to change it’s ways, in order to save their relationship. We did this keeping a light and relaxed attitude, making the customer say to their favorite product of our target brand: ”I love you but we need to take a break until you change your ways”.
Facebook & Mobile Apps
After taking action the user is asked to share the breakup letter on Facebook and donate money to help preserve the rainforest and its wildlife. The breakup letter was fun, and little mysterious to raise curiosity and provoke further interest in the subject.
We also developed a mobile application. The aim was to reach people that liked the relationship test and the brand jacking, people with strong connection to the brand, and people already engaged in the issue of rainforest destruction so they can take further action and share this cause.
Almost 9 000 emails have now been sent to our target Cloetta, which is a lot considering the small population of Sweden, we got good spin off effects in the media and more than 15000 Facebook shares within the first 24 hours of campaign launch.
“Your site definitely helped us reach outside our regular audience. We definitely kicked some corporate butt and the campaign was almost entirely won because of our online efforts; the relationship test, our parody posters, some fluffy animals, a dose of humor and good communication with our supporters in social media. We are very proud of this victory!
Thank you for helping us reach this goal!
