McDonald’s Create spoof Hype Brand ‘Schnuggs’ to launch Spicy Chicken McNuggets


McDonald’s and Leo Burnett London have launched an amusing campaign called ‘Schnuggs’ celebrating the release of new Spicy Chicken McNuggets, their hottest new product launch and the latest addition to its menu, available for seven weeks.

The campaign comprises a mixture of food focused content and short films showing models wearing custom made Spicy Chicken McNuggets apparel in aid of the hottest collaboration of the year – Spicy X Chicken McNuggets = Schnuggs. Drawing upon the love of Chicken McNuggets, the campaign is targeted at 16-24year olds and aims to tap into the cult-like brands this age group is infatuated by.

With brands like Supreme having consumers queuing outside stores from the early hours of the morning for the latest product drop, the campaign draws upon this culture to create a spoof clothing brand modelling the Spicy Chicken McNuggets.

The combination of this affinity driving content is supported by a burn visual identity that hit press and social a week before the campaign to tease spice lovers of the latest product release from McDonald’s. The intrigue was over on Wednesday 7th August with mysterious burn holes in the Metro announced the launch of Spicy Chicken McNuggets at McDonald’s.

Soon to become the most talked about food launch of the year, the social campaign will run across Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Further supported on Snapchat with a hilarious Spicy Chicken McNugget Face Lens that allows users to turn their face into a fire breathing Spicy Chicken McNugget. If this is not enough fun for you, the campaign will also feature Snapchat Marker Tech, one of the latest innovations in augmented reality which will bring the OOH posters to life through Snapchat

A series of GIFs and stickers have also been created that will live across digital channels allowing consumers to engage and interact with one another using the hot social currency.

Liz Whitbread at McDonald’s said “The Spicy Chicken McNuggets campaign is a very exciting product launch for us. An existing innovation to one of our most loved products and with Schnuggs, we’ve got a campaign to match.”

Graham Lakeland, Creative Director at Leo Burnett London, said: “We drew inspiration from these cult-like brands that have this young audience going crazy for their latest product. Therefore, creating a spoof ‘hype beast’ clothing brand to model our new Spicy McNuggets felt like a great fit. This, coupled with a mixture of food-focused posts helps us create a buzz to become one of the most talked about foods this year.”

German Supermarket PENNY Encourage People To Rediscover Their Inner Child



This Christmas, PENNY and Serviceplan Campaign are inviting adults to revisit their childhood with a carefree film shot by director Stuart McIntyre to the soundtrack of Alphaville’s ‘Forever Young’.

PENNY’s first international campaign launched in Germany on Friday 8th November and will air in Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, Romania and Hungary. The heart-warming film depicts a group of OAPs revisiting their carefree youth by sledging down a snow-covered hill. The joyful spot has struck a chord with the public and already has more than 10 million views: https://youtu.be/pJ8f5plLbiw.

Motivated by a desire to find reassurance in the current climate of political, economical and environmental uncertainty in Germany and globally, PENNY and lead agency Serviceplan Campaign wanted to create a Christmas campaign that would provide some relief from the problems of contemporary society.

Consequently, ‘Christmas is for Children: So for all of us’ is the message of the PENNY Christmas 2019 campaign, which embraces Christmas as a time for people to return to a more naïve and positive outlook on life – in the same way that children do. The campaign is about to getting back your inner child and seeing how this can change your life. Why PENNY? Because the customers at PENNY are no strangers to the difficulties that life can pose, and PENNY hopes to alleviate some of those difficulties.

The motto of the PENNY 2019 Christmas campaign is ‘Christmas is for Children: So for all of us’, and follows the successful 2018 and 2017 Christmas films from Serviceplan Campaign. Intended to make people forget their fears and worries and view Christmas again with the carefree attitude of a child, the heart of the campaign is an online film directed by Stuart McIntyre with Production from ANORAK films.

We Are Walker reinterpreted the Alphaville track „Forever Young“ with the voice of a child, to complement the theme of the PENNY film. In addition to the film, print motifs will be shown in PENNY's own media channels. The PENNY Instagram Channel will also feature the #KindBleibenChallenge in which PENNY, together with influencers, calls on adults to be children again for a moment. The three Challenge winners can look forward to a trip to Disneyland.

Christoph Everke, Creative Managing Director of Serviceplan Campaign commented: "Not all of us are parents. But we are all children. Sometimes we seem to forget that. The film and the song 'Forever Young' are intended to give people the opportunity to reflect on their childhood".

Stefan Magel, Divisional Director Trading Germany REWE Group and COO of PENNY added: "As a discount store at the heart of people's lives, it is important to us to give something back to our customers. Christmas makes it easy for us to feel the anticipation and the childlike excitement. Being able to be a child again is a gift to which we all share the message: 'Christmas is for children. So for all of us".
