Brief Explanation

HALLS, the long-selling menthol candy was experiencing a gradually aging target. Our challenge was to develop a promotion that would break down the guard of a youthful target segment and encourage them to try HALLS.We used the evocative Aaaan (a girl pops food into a guy's mouth) as the hook to our promotion. Two measures were combined to trigger trial purchase(1)Distributed a wonder app, free of charge, with pin-up models delivering a virtual Aaaan (2)Mounted Aaaan product sampling events conducted by real-life pin-up girls.20,000+ downloads of Aaaan app (5x initial projections)HALLS revenue dramatically increased by approx 131%
