McDonalds Baby»»»I nominate this Ad for Most Outstanding Commercial

McDonalds “Baby” is one of the nominations for Most Outstanding Commercial at the Primetime Emmy Awards being held on September 18 in Los Angeles. The commercial, launched in April 2010, features a dad whose attempts to keep his baby asleep involve driving around in the car in the night. He manages to get an order into the McDonald’s Drive Through attendant, but only by circling a few times.

McDonalds| come clean

Integrated Campaign

Problem: People feel guilty about eating McDonald’s food because of negative publicity around its nutritional value. Local governments have even banned McDonalds advertising targeted at children.
Insight: Healthy eaters spring for McDonalds as a guilty pleasure but are ashamed of their secret McDonalds habit. The majority of McDonalds related tweets deal with people rewarding themselves with McDonalds or feeling guilty about eating there.
Solution: Let closeted McDonalds fanatics know that they’re not alone. Have people come clean about their McDonalds habit by publicly confessing.



We created the twitter account: @McDsConfession and the hash tag #McDsConfessionFeeds for both of these handles display all the McDonalds Confessions worldwide in realtime on the website

Dunkin Donuts | ”giving it 110%”

Problems: The recession  forced commuters to cut back on coffee, breakfast and lunch from fast food franchises. What consumers don’t know is that Dunkin Donuts was founded on and helped fuel America out of The Great Depression. Most importantly, Dunkin Donuts is a quasi-bakery that doesn’t serve a bakers’ dozen.

Insight: Dunkin’s customers, hard-working Americans, pride themselves on their cliched  ”giving it 110%” work ethic.
Solution: Inspire Americans to keep giving 110% by setting a good example. Give Americans a bakers’ dozen worth of everything Dunkin Donuts sells.
To do this, we created a line of promotional Bakers’ Dozen products to be sold next to their pre-ground coffee in supermarkets and at franchise locations.
To get the word out about the promotion, we created a campaign targeting morning commuters. The target market spends a lot of time with traditional media, especially while commuting. So our campaign features: print, radio, outdoor and point of purchase poster ads to remind commuters to stop at Dunkin Donuts on the way to work.
