Case Study

Combining Interactive Ads with Brand Integrations for Higher Brand Awareness

The Overview

Kellogg’s partnered with Activision Blizzard Media to drive brand impact for Pringles. By providing players with a gamified and rewarded ad experience, Pringles was able to drive upper-funnel brand lift among a highly engaged audience in a premium, brand-safe environment.

The Goal

Drive top-of-mind awareness and purchase intent for Pringles.

  • Campaign Dates: April - May 2022
  • Creative Format: Playables and Brand Integrations
  • Market Measured: Germany
  • Inventory: King Games

The Solution

The campaign featured a Match-3 Playable and a Brand Integration that rewarded players. The creative ads provided an interactive opportunity for users to play a game, as well as offering a more unique gifting experience vs. the standard Rewarded Video. The Match-3 Playable ad, on its own, drove a significant full-funnel lift across both Awareness and Purchase Intent. Additionally, the Brand Integration drove incremental impact and expanded campaign reach. As a result, Pringles saw tremendous success across all measured brand metrics.
