(adds info on the campaign from agency’s side)

Cabral and Puya are starring in a new Lay’s campaign, “Lay’s comes with a super-pot, money in the bag and in the suitcase”, continuing the collaboration started with PepsiCo in 2013. The campaign has the biggest money prizes that Lays put up for grabs until now, and Cabral and Puya are the characters of the TV ad. The 2 celebrities are interpreting the song “Bagă bani” in their own way, offering to consumers details on how they can win the prizes.

As we got used already, Puya and Cabral are perfectly surprising Lay’s spirit also in the new ad, and the collaboration with them is a pleasure for us. with “Baga Banii”, we aimed to communicate to consumers, in a funny and entertaining manner, details on the extremely attractive prizes offered as part of the campaign. This kind of campaign is already a tradition for Lay’s, and this year, the total prizes reach the highest value of Lay’s history in Romania:  RON 1.35M
