The well-known cookie brand Oreo has done some movie tie-ins in the past, but nothing like this. For the first time ever, it’s inked a global movie marketing deal with Paramount Pictures to help promote their upcoming film, Transformers: Age of Extinction. After the break, find out some of the specifics of their marketing campaign.
Along with product placement in the movie, the campaign would cover more than 35 countries and include a global television spot directed by Michael Bay. The spot is called “Little Help,” and will run in more than 15 countries. The ad involves an Oreo cookie providing a moment of support while the Transformers robots carry on their fight against evil.
Other parts of the campaign include digital advertising, special Oreo packaging and signage that highlights the movie tie-in. Some parts of the world like Southeast Asian will get customized Oreo flavors like “prime berry creme,” while Asia and Latin America get cookies embossed with Transformers logos. The brand is also unleashing movie themed activities via their mobile app, “Oreo’s Twist, Lick and Dunk.”
Transformers: Age of Extinction arrives in theaters and on 3D in the US on June 27th. You can check out the film’s latest trailer at our post here.
