Creating a launch campaign for Burger King's new 'kosher bacon' product range made from turkey. The challenge was to create a huge buzz on a modest budget which would encourage customers in Israel to try Burger King's new product range. Harder still – how could the campaign turn the limitations of kosher requirements, 'kosher bacon' into an advantage?
That perfect presenter was Melech Zilbershlag, an internet celebrity, comedian and content creator from a Haredi community with appeal to religious and secular audiences alike. Melech, a name which translates to 'King' in English fits perfectly with the Burger King brand. His youthfulness, humor and religious background were able to reassure customers that the turkey-based product range was indeed kosher, and appeal to the brand's core audiences. Melech's internet fame also afforded significant organic exposure through his digital and online platforms.
There were more than 2,000,000 video views on Burger King's Facebook and Instagram pages. Analytics showed that the campaign received 2 million exposures in just a week!
Melech's digital assets also received great exposure, his platforms received in excess of 120,000 organic views in just 3 days!
