Traditional taste and smell enhancers, celebrity advice, coherence with a person’s image—all this can make the product, both eatable or not, more attractive to a consumer. But there’s also another thing that can make virtually any product on the market more attractive. This magic non-physical intensifier is a ritual, which adds a new enjoyable dimension to the process of consuming a product.
Cadbury is launching a “bubble-inspired” campaign “The Frothybeast” to promote its new product, Wispa Hot Chocolate, across the UK. The push by Fallon London is fronted by the brand’s new fictional spokesperson, an Italian hunk with a foamy chocolate hair and beard style, who “epitomises the playful and fun nature” of the new product.
Comparison stands behind any considered choice, and any confident global brand tends to provide its consumers with an opportunity to examine both the positive and negative sides of their products—and sometimes weigh its offerings against goods by other manufacturer. Sometimes, companies also step outside the product world and help compare lots of other things—sexes, automobiles, brothers, tastes, political parties, athletes and more—to help determine which of the two is better, stronger, messier, tastier, faster, more attractive, reliable, sportive, etc. In this overview, we won’t focus on serious ratings revealing carbon footprint or social impact, like Nike’s Environmental Apparel Design Tool, Timberland’s Eco Index or GoodWill’s rating—instead, as tribute to April Fool’s Day, which was celebrated last Friday, we will focus on humorous and tongue-in-cheek projects.
Cadbury has launched the British Wispa website with lots of information on the product, fun activities and a very appealing “hand-made” design. There you can feel at home and share your ideas, feelings and impressions with other fans of the brand. The user-friendly design makes you want to stay there longer and explore every corner of the site.
