Brand: Pizza Hut
Campaign: How our Pizza Heart won the hearts of Malaysians
Categories: Digital & Social
Pizza Hut is a brand that Malaysians have grown up with. Over the years, fond childhood memories have become old and irrelevant to today’s social media generation.
Pizza Hut saw an opportunity to build brand love during Valentine’s by creating a cheesy love guru – ‘Jiwang Jeff’ to talk about the top relationship problem which had a double entendre – common issues that Malaysian Pizza Hut customers frequently complained about on our social media accounts and ask them to “Give Love a Chance”. We also worked with the creator of SMK FastFood’s iconic comic character “Pijahat”. We turn the ‘class prankster’ into a generous good guy by demonstrating the power of giving love a chance.
Pizza Hearts were send to competitors and media houses, along with cheesy pick-up lines to woo them, and get them to spread Pizza Hearts in return.
