Releasing A Love Story that Sells Itself
After returning Extra to growth on the strength of one heartwarming ad, "Origami", there was still doubt about whether an emotional approach was viable for gum. Was it a one-hit-wonder, or the beginning of something more? It was a critical question for Wrigley, as Extra was its largest growth brand. We responded by creating a short film that quickly became one of 2016's most celebrated love stories.With this film at the heart of our communications, we more than quadrupled Extras growth rate, even as the category declined.

How do you get a young audience focused on the Kardashians to embrace their humanity as global citizens and to care about crises half a world away? To tackle this, we built the worlds first tool enabling people to donate their social newsfeeds for a day, posting reports from the field. We partnered with influential social celebrities to launch #ShareHumanity and encourage their followings to give a voice to the voiceless. Through a network effect, we shared thousands of crisis posts, getting the word out about World Humanitarian Day, driving Millennial support and press coverage for the cause.
