Photo courtesy of Hunter PR Company: Kraft Foods Agency: Hunter PR Timeframe: March - May 2010 The Kraft Macaroni & Cheese launch of its new product, Cheddar Explosion, had all the elements of a compelling campaign: an iconic food brand; Texas Stadium, until recently the home of “America’s Team”; passionate testimonials from moms; and a community minded 11-year-old contest winner, who would get to blow something up. Really, all that was missing was a dog. But yet the key driver of the campaign’s success would not be any of those elements. Instead a social platform that in its own right has become iconic— Facebook —would be the “hub” of the campaign.
