Lay’s, together with Cabral and Puya in a new Romanian campaign

Ads, Creativity

Lay’s started a new campaign in Romania, having as ambassadors Cabral and Puya. The campaign promotes the launch of 3 new assortments of chips and challenges the consumers to guess the names of the newly launched products and have a chance to win 3 big prizes (RON 25,000 each) and a lot of other prizes.

Puya and Cabral, together with 2 teams of Romanian bloggers, went to a farm and, after an intense cooking session – during which they tested the recipes and exchanged opinions, the 2 ambassadors challenged all Romanians: by November 16th, all consumers are invited to enter the contest, on a special website and via SMS.

The new Lay’s campaign is the most daring initiative we had until now: we launched 3 secret recipes and an challenge. As we are used, Cabral and Puya start this challenge, and our consumers are rewarded at every step on the way. We will also help them, offering them clues and surprises to help them find the secret names and win the prizes at stake
