Oreo has tapped star power to promote its new Golden Double Stuf cookie.
In a homepage video ad that appears today on YouTube, Donald Trump challenges Eli and Peyton Manning to participate in a “lick race” competition to buy the so-called DSRL or the Double Stuf Racing League.
The YouTube video includes a promotion pointing Oreo fans to follow the brand on Facebook and Twitter and visit a YouTube channel or microsite for the Double Stuf Racing League. The campaign also includes a sweepstakes to meet the Mannings in Florida.
Will using celebrities like Trump and the Manning brothers help a social media campaign? Perhaps. To me, though, it feels like Oreo — which has a huge following on Facebook — is trying a little too hard to stuff its brand into social media channels.
What would we do without social media?
Facebook isn't just the world's largest social network. In the past two years, it has also become one of the world's most popular online destinations for consuming video content.
If your responsibilities have anything to do with marketing, advertising, PR or social media, you can’t afford to be camera-shy in this day and age.
It has been a very busy year for Instagram.
