Cold Rock Summer Advertising Campaign 2014
Franchised Food Company
Red Crayon was again asked to develop an integrated multi-channel advertising campaign for the Summer of 2013/14. Cold Rock expressed some simple goals: make it bigger than 2011, drive more traffic into the 100 stores around Australia and to add 15,000 new subscribers to their database. The campaign was to run from just after Christmas through to Australia Day in January 2014.
Red Crayon pitched a concept that saw two characters that were reminiscent of a couple of adversaries from the ‘old west’ duelling for the right to give one lucky customer either $10,000 cash or a $10,000 diamond. Enter “The Cold Hard Cash Vs The Cold Hard Rock.” The guys at Cold Rock instantly fell in love with the two characters and over the ensuing weeks refined and developed a 3D animated TVC. The concept was then rolled out across TV, Outdoor, Social in-store and Online where the customers were directed to make their choice to win either the Cold Hard Cash or The Cold Hard Rock.
This campaign saw 24,000 unique entries with the eventual prize winner choosing the Cold Hard Rock.
