Mercury360 and Ciocco Latte focus on real friendship, in a new campaign for Dr. Oetker


Romanian integrated agency Mercury360 signs the communication campaign for the launch of 2 new hot chocolate assortments from Dr. Oetker: Ciocco Latte Rum and Ciocco Latte hazelnuts.

The integrated communication campaign started in February, with a TV ad developed locally. The TV communication, that lasts 6 weeks and is declined on the main Romanian TV channels, is completed by executions in online (website, web banner, Facebook), print and points of sales.

The communication idea is based on the real friends company joy and the delights offered by a dense and creamy dessert, easy to prepare at home.

Campaigns idea reached us  on the couch from the creative department, looking for insights about friendship in our own memories. We found the simple truth that really good friends are gathering together not only for parties, but also in normal circumstances. This is why we decided to position Ciocco Latte as the real friendships dessert.

Working together with the director and the production house ran smoothly and the result is visible: a TV ad full of life, that has the power to make the viewers feel the familiarity and warm of the meetings between good friends
