On top of everything that has happened in 2020, NASA has reported that Asteroid 2018VP1 is headed toward Earth’s atmosphere on November 2. “I wonder who will save the Oreos,” tweeted a concerned citizen.
Although there’s virtually no chance (0.41% to be exact) of it threatening our beloved cookie when it passes by, OREO isn’t risking a future without the world’s favorite cookie...
It was our civic duty to take the potential threat seriously, working day and night to protect the future of OREO Cookies for civilization. But how? By building an asteroid-proof vault in Svalbard, Norway, filling it with a stockpile of OREO Cookies, our secret recipe, and documenting the entire journey.
We overhauled OREO’s Instagram and Twitter for five days, masterfully dropping playful teasers about our plan to save the OREO Cookies. Upon sharing that OREO had a plan in the works, fans responded with feelings of relief and gratitude that followed our very serious tone… and anticipation for what was to come.
To further drive campaign engagement, we gave fans a peek into the vault with special OREO packs wrapped in protective casing, accompanied with powdered milk. Fans went wild for them, asking how they could get their hands on a pack and requesting OREO make them for real.
