Remember Ted Williams? He was the homeless man with the million-dollar radio voice who went from panhandler to viral sensation to Kraft-sponsored stardom (practically overnight). Well, he’s back. After a short hiatus from the limelight, he is now starring in a Valentine’s-centered social media campaign for Kraft Mac & Cheese.  The gist: Tweet a message [...]

Domino’s have always claimed an innovation story, in fact a lot of their best selling products have come from store staff, not the head office chefs.

2 Comments

We’ve featured a few “1 Million Fans” celebration campaigns and content pieces over the last year, and suitably, the guys at Top Gear have taken their celebration just a little further than normal, perhaps that’s because they’ve just hit 10 Million Fans, or is it just because they can? A little of both I suspect… [...]

Happy New Year to everyone who has enjoyed and supported Digital Buzz this year!

29. November 2011

4 Comments

This is a pretty interesting social play from Olla Condoms in Brazil, and while I probably wouldn’t recommend a campaign like it for any brand, I think the idea is kinda neat at the very core. Targeting young guys, Olla Condoms set about creating hundreds and hundreds of fake Facebook profiles, setup with the names [...]

So, when Eddie Terstall (a famous Dutch film-maker) only managed to reach $2k of the $20k he teamed up with One Big Agency to try something just a little different… So they created Twitflicks. Mini-Movies that [...]
