AlphaFoods Class Action Lawsuit

Taste is the #1 barrier to trying plant-based. Americans simply don't want to believe that something made from veggies can taste like meat. But Alpha’s meat alternatives really do. To prove that our products were truly indistinguishable from the real thing, we did the unthinkable - we invited ‘accidental’ vegans, who had been unwittingly duped by Alpha into becoming plant-lovers, to sue us for damages by joining a Class Action Lawsuit. The campaign generated 27% increase in sales, 218M impressions, a 10X increase in search and 7X increase in web-traffic..

Reverse Mode: Reversing Injustice & Rediscovering an Icon

To build relevance with the critical Gen-Z audience, Champion needed to authentically connect with their values. We know they value equity and inclusion, and create today’s pop culture together with their favorite influencers on social media. So we partnered with Jalaiah Harmon, the creator of TikTok’s massively viral #RenegadeChallenge, to build relevance for Reverse Weave, while tackling an issue Gen-Z cared deeply about: injustice for Black creators on TikTok. With a tiny budget, the campaign broke into youth culture, improved sales +89%, and cut costs/online shopping sessions -70%.

Bragging Rights

Detroit City Football Club grew from a ragtag amateur club playing on high school fields to the hottest sports ticket in town. And they used that momentum to become a force in the community. After 8 years of grinding through various amateur leagues, the Club finally was ready to go pro in 2020 - then Covid hit. They needed to crowd fund $1.2 million in 4 months, during a recession, to stay alive. Our campaign achieved that in less than 5 days, by selling not just shares, but bragging rights.
