Creative Execution:

Our strategy: Make KFC the juiciest news in town 1) Invite curiosity: Seed/ initiate conversations around the new offering - Mirage technology boxes featuring hologram of the product invite consumers to try and grab it - a media first. - WOM through journalists/ bloggers 2) News annoucement: To truly make headline news we delivered another media first with leading commuter paper "TODAY" - We owned the masthead for the day and changed it to 'jUICIEST NEWS TODAY' This was coupled with a stick-on advertisement with a visual of an oven. Readers were invited to peel open the 'oven' to reveal Roasta Burger as the juiciest news 3) Enabling Buzz: We made foodies our journalist 'KFC newscaster' were invited to announce and spread the news for us. Auditions were held through online applications which allowed consumers to experience being a newscaster, and share their reporting newsclip with friends

Insights, Strategy and the Idea:

Research showed a strong emergence of health conscious consumers who visited KFC less often as fried chicken was deemed unhealthy, resulted in a high percentage of lapsed users, and low visit frequency. Our challenge lay in overcoming consumer perceptions:- KFC = Only good fried chicken + unhealthy To combat this, KFC launched 'Roasta Burger' to revitalize the brand in offering wider variety, and a healthy alternate to help correct the existing perception Our objectives: 1. Trigger a reappraisal of the brand that 'KFC was not only about fried chicken' 2. Drive appetite appeal and trials of the new non-fried product 3. Improve frequency of visits and sales target by 5% Our strategy was built on two key insights: a. Key attribute of 'juiciness' drove high levels of appetite appeal and intention to try b. Buzz on food grabs attention and drives urgency/ reason on trials
