Overview

Background

Brief

McDonald’s wanted to recruit a younger demographic and decided to launch the Big McWrap and a new "category" to that effect.

Objectives :

- Install a new category within McDonald's Morocco's offers in 2019 whose critical mission is to conquer the 2nd most important Need state in the Moroccan market: Affordable & Filling Meal

- Retention and Consolidation of two vital segments for the brand: Teens (16-17) and Young Adults (18-24). This involves a strategy of share stealing of a category that is developing very rapidly in this Need state: French Tacos.

Awareness: The Grand McWrap is distinctive in its image from the brand's flagship product (the burger). It is therefore vital to rapidly achieve strong brand awareness upon launch while ensuring an instant association with the brand.

Sales: 1M units of the Grand McWrap by December 2019

Idea

Problem :

Our campaign was ready to be launched when a cultural event of epic proportions took place: Don Bigg, one of the most famous rappers, released « 170kg », a single clashing the whole rap scene. All the attention of our audience was focused on this diss, leaving us with a huge problem: our campaign would go completely unnoticed.

Creative idea 
We decided to join the conversation and answer the rap scene with our own track; in order to be noticed by our audience and redirect the attention towards the Big McWrap’s launch.

Execution

Execution:

We collaborated with « El Grande Toto », a rising moroccan rap artist

and launched « Jme3 O Twi », a rap track written, recorded and aired in 72h

JME3 O TWI literally means « Wrap it up » in reference to the Big McWrap, we used this common moroccan expression as an invitation to end the clash.

We also created a dance inspired by the wrapping gesture, and invited the community to try it through McDonald’s page and El Grande Toto’s instagram account.
