Advertising News: Doritos Rocks Election Season To Empower Young Voters



Doritos' Partnership with Rock the Vote and Limited-Edition Bags Rally Millennial Voters - a Rapidly Growing Voting Contingent - to Take a Stand, Make a Choice and Vote


PLANO, Texas, Sept. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The youth vote in America has decreased by double digits since 1964. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, one in two Americans ages 18 to 24 did not vote in 1964; by 2012, 62 percent did not turn out to polls. With the Millennial generation set to become one of the largest, most diverse – and perhaps most important – voting contingents in the country (CIRCLE), Doritos, a brand built on bold choices, is out to show the boldest choice you can make this year is one at the ballot box.

This election season, Doritos, one of the marquee brands from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division, is partnering with Rock the Vote, the largest non-partisan, non-profit organization in the country dedicated to building long-term youth political power, to engage and mobilize young people to register to vote and participate in elections.





As part of the Boldest Choice campaign, the Doritos brand is introducing a limited-edition Doritos bag created for those not registered to vote. It has no taste, no crunch and no chips to illustrate that, if you don't make a choice, you don't get a choice.

"This election season, Doritos believes the boldest choice is making a choice," said Jennifer Saenz, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Frito-Lay. "We have always believed every single person can make an impact – we all have a voice and it's important we exercise that voice and be heard. Our campaign reinforces the idea that if you don't make a choice, someone else chooses for you."

As a brand known for being bold, Doritos is rallying for one of the most important causes in America – making a choice at the polls. To bring this message to the masses, Doritos is joining Rock the Vote on its Truth to Power bus tour to various stops at college campuses, beginning with a stop in Denver, Colo., on National Voter Registration Day. Doritos will also join Rock the Vote to rally youth voters at additional stops in Madison, Wis. and Chicago, Ill.

"It's impressive to see Doritos step up this election season as corporate partners, committed to engaging and mobilizing young people to embrace the historic power of our vote," said Jesse Moore, vice president at Rock the Vote. "Millennials represent the largest, most diverse voting bloc in our nation's history, and, given that the stakes have never been higher, it's encouraging to see companies like Doritos work with us to champion a stronger more inclusive future for young people."

Starting tomorrow, National Voter Registration Day, consumers can order a bag of "No Choice" Doritos at www.Doritosredvsblue.com/Vote and send them to someone they know who is not registered to vote. Doritos hopes the bag will encourage them to make the boldest choice – registering to vote online and then going out and making a choice by casting a vote November 8.

To bring the Boldest Choice concept to life, Doritos created a vending machine that dispensed the provocative bags instead of the consumer's snack of choice to students not registered to vote. Only registered voters got their choice of Doritos Nacho Cheese or Cool Ranch from the machine — demonstrating that when you're not registered to vote, you don't get a choice and, if you are, you do. (Though all participants will receive samples of Doritos Nacho Cheese or Cool Ranch regardless of voter registration status). People's reactions are captured in the video www.Doritosredvsblue.com/Vote.

For 25 years, Rock the Vote has been at the forefront of helping to register and turn out young voters. This year, the organization has launched a multimillion-dollar national campaign called Truth to Power — including the national bus tour — to engage and mobilize Millennials across the country in the 2016 election. Working with nonprofit and corporate partners like Doritos, Rock the Vote aims to register two million new voters before Election Day on November 8th and to help drive Millennial turnout in key swing states.

Advertising Spotlight: The Bud Light Party Launches with Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen


The Bud Light Party Announces Its Candidacy to America

New Campaign Featuring Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen Will Bring Beer Drinkers Together to Raise One to Right Now

 NEW YORK – January 22, 2016 – The Bud Light Party steps onto the national stage today with a mission to unite modern beer drinkers. The new campaign from America’s most inclusive beer brand will celebrate bringing people together – for fun – over a beer. The Bud Light Party is the first campaign to bring to life Bud Light’s new “Raise One to Right Now” tagline, designed to provide a unique and light-hearted Bud Light perspective on timely cultural moments – starting with Super Bowl 50.

Right now there is nothing more timely or talked about than the presidential election. At a time when debates get heated and “unfriending” is at an all-time high, The Bud Light Party offers something everyone can agree on. A party that invites everyone. A party that knows how to party. A party that isn’t a political party at all.

Leading this humor-based campaign is comedic duo Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen – the faces of The Bud Light Party. Starting with a Super Bowl ad and continuing in national broadcast and digital creative throughout the year, Schumer and Rogen will rally beer drinkers to put their differences aside and agree to agree on Bud Light.

“This is more than just a Super Bowl ad,” said Bud Light vice president Alexander Lambrecht, “it’s a completely new communication of what Bud Light stands for – inclusivity, positivity and fun. The Bud Light Party allows our brand to live in the right now.”

The campaign – created with Wieden+Kennedy New York – is the culmination of a larger effort underway to evolve the way Bud Light looks, acts and connects with modern consumers.




“Bud Light occupies such a unique place in American culture. We embraced the opportunity to work together on connecting the brand to beer drinkers in a way that’s definitely uncharted, but still very true to the brand,” said Wieden+Kennedy New York executive creative director Karl Lieberman. “With ‘Raise One to Right Now,’ Bud Light opens up real conversations with beer drinkers about the things that matter to them most.”

In December, the brand announced its plans to roll out a bold new look this spring. This redesign – the first major overhaul of Bud Light’s visual identity in eight years – includes a reimagined Bud Light logo and contemporized primary and secondary packaging. The new bottle design is featured prominently throughout The Bud Light Party campaign.

7-Eleven Makes Election-Themed Coffee Cups

Why wear your politicial affiliation on your sleeve when you can wear it on your 7-Eleven coffee-cup sleeve? The newest campaign from 7-Eleven lets you vote early, by picking between an Obama- or Romney-themed cup.

Fast Company reports that the election-themed coffee cups will be at selected locations, where a cup choice can be an official endorsement. What's even crazier? On its website, 7-Eleven is tracking how many Obama and Romney cups are sold and showing the percentages "won." So far, President Obama is leading 58 percent to Mitt Romney's 42 percent — could 7-Eleven accurately predict the next president? We guess so: the 2008 7-Eleven campaign predicted Obama's win.

Be sure to mark Sept. 28 on the calendar to get a free cup of coffee from 7-Eleven, political affiliations aside. We'll be watching people's coffee cups now.
