CohnandJansen JWT, Starcom and Kraft Foods took over the internet, with TUC, in a campaign that included a teasing period (March 7th-26th) and one of revealing, through the website invazia.ro (March 27th-May 2nd).

The teasing banner and the revealing one appeared on websites such as trilulilu.ro, regielive.ro, 220.ro or cinemarx.ro.

The teasing was followed by the revealing, with TUC characters explaining the invasion reasons on www.invazia.ro. In the same time, the campaign also includes a Facebook app TUCizatorul.

We made a concept in which TUC characters are invading and own the internet. And, because when we are hungry we tend to eat anything, the animated TUC characters have strange shapes in their stomachs, because they eat weird stuff. this way, in their stomach one can find all sorts of objects, from umbrellas to trumphets, TVs etc

Deputy Creative Director CohnandJansen JWT.

Our objective was to increase brand’s notoriety among the target public – busy young urban that use internet as main communication channel, fun resource, meeting place etc. We had to convince them to enter in a dialogue with the brand. In the 1st stage, TUC characters invaded the most popular websites, continuing afterwords with Facebook. This way we decided to make TUCizator – a simple and amusing game, presented as a Facebook app
