The Snack of the Century

McDonald’s Chili Cheese Fries Launch Campaign
We were tasked to create talkability and awareness around the launch of the new Chili Cheese Fries in South Africa, so we tapped into social media culture tactfully and meme-ified (free because zero budget) beautiful classical art paintings and made our very own localised classical art memes centred around snacking, sharing, not sharing and topically relevant, cultural and social nuances. It was also the first campaign where McDonald’s communicated in almost all of the 11 official languages.
