The OREO brand has launched its new, globally integrated marketing campaign Open Up with OREO, which conveys a simple but powerful message: open your heart to people who are different than you and you’ll discover the similarities. The new campaign addresses a behavioral shift that comes with age. While children are naturally open, adults begin to default to the familiar, which can cause them to close themselves off to others.The campaign will include a global TV spot, digital content series, in-store point of sale and, in select countries, global prizing and custom product embossments.The animated TV spot comes to life through the brand’s signature Wonderfilled aesthetic and upbeat music. Set against the backdrop of a playfully diverse roller rink, the animation follows a young girl inspiring those around her to look inside themselves to let a little bit of wonder out and, in turn, let others in. In the spot, an OREO cookie is the catalyst for the characters to open up to each other. The spot launched in the U.S. onJanuary 18 featuring the vocals of multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated recording artist Adam Lambert. More than 50 other markets will follow with vocals, lyrics and languages adapted locally as necessary.In addition, digital content and a video series will launch February 2 to demonstrate how an OREO cookie can open an unexpected introduction, even a friendship, between two characters from different walks of life. The video series will be comprised of animated stories in which the characters share an OREO cookie and create a Wonderfilled connection.The new campaign builds on the brand’s success of making a global platform relevant across the globe by leveraging universal consumer insights, but executing in a way that reflects the local context and culture.
