“I’ve got a disco ball inside my fishtank”
6 Months on and a ‘successful’ Chabuddy is faced with a big problem.
Writing collaboratively with the series creators, we developed a storyline that fitted seamlessly with the ‘People Just Do Nothing’ show. The episodes were seeded through highly-targeted EDM and picked up by industry press as well as hosted on Think with Google. Launched in the weeks leading up to the BBC show’s final season and coinciding with an important period where media agency budgets are allocated, our campaign made search feel vital, current and cool again.
Furthering the campaign reach, we surprised real specialists from the industry by writing them into a key scene in the story. We also by created and sent real packets of Peanut Dust together with a note from Chabuddy thanking them for their incredible work in the field of search.
The campaign culminated in an epic ‘Search Like a G’ awards party, where over 500 industry VIPs joined together to celebrate Search and the top 20 specialists making it happen.
