Apologize the Rainbow

To revive momentum for its core business, Skittles needed to bring salience and appeal back to its basic product proposition. We rekindled the love by leaning into years of “hate” around the flavor change of green Skittles – bringing back the original lime flavor and apologizing to (literally) everyone who had complained about us taking it away.Brand content served as the lynchpin of this over-the-top corporate mea culpa, making the original Skittles experience top of mind once again, and boosting core sales 7.4% to their highest point in history.

Michelob ULTRA McENROE vs. McENROE

To push to be the country’s number one beer, Michelob ULTRA needed to stand out in an increasingly noisy category. Using never-before-seen technology, Michelob ULTRA enabled John McEnroe to play a real match against his past self, experiencing the joy he missed as a player. McEnroe vs. McEnroe challenged the win-at-all-costs mentality plaguing modern sports, providing a timely reminder of the brand’s motto: It’s only worth it if you enjoy it. The campaign lifted brand relevance/buzz +25%, earned over 3 billion impressions, and helped lift sales year-on-year by +15%.
