Forecast: advertising expenditures will not recover quickly even after recession <ul><li>PwC : Global adspend will not return to the level recorded in 2008 in the next five years, and the advertising industry is also set to undergo a "profound structural shift" as the increased use of digital leads to fewer resources being "wasted" elsewhere . - T his recession will last longer than previous ones due to a steeper downturn - “Digital migration” : increased use of the "time-shifted viewing“, mobile web, and growth of social networking websites and online video-on-demand services. - M arketers will need to shift their resources from traditional media to new digital media, seeking to reflect and capitalise on evolving media consumption habits. - A dvertisers will be able to achieve the same or better reach and performance for a relatively lower spend", this may ultimately come to "put downward pressure on total global adspend,“ </li></ul>

Strategic Challenge How do you make a product that has been around for 50 years and already sells over a billion units annually interesting enough that you increase sales during a highly competitive period, using absolutely no marketing tools other than advertising? That was our challenge in Whopper’s 50th anniversary year. With no special product builds, pricing , changes, couponing, giveaways, special offers or distribution changes, we had to make promiscuous fast food consumers fall in love with Whopper again and eat it more often than they already did.
Objectives Reaffirm Whopper’s iconic status as ‘America’s favorite burger.’ Increase Whopper sales and total store comparative sales vs. a year ago for the same
The Big Idea Demonstrate America’s love of Whopper by taking it away. We needed to do something no one had ever done before. So we devised a little experiment. Rather than give people a Whopper in order to get their response, we decided to take the Whopper away to see what would happen. Specifically, we took over a Burger King restaurant in Las Vegas for a single day and: 1) told people that the Whopper had been permanently removed from the menu 2) or swapped people’s Whopper orders with competitive burgers like the Big Mac This experiment was totally for real and did not feature actors in the roles of customers. The experiment was with ordinary people who showed up as part of their regular day. We took a reality TV concept and applied it to advertising. What happened exceeded our expectations. People freaked out. And we captured their reactions on film.
Bringing the Idea to Life Our approach to media was to encourage people to SPREAD THE FREAKOUT. We used a series of TV spots to drive traffic to ‘Whopperfreakout.com’ where people could view a full-length 8-minute documentary on the experiment. Burger King is consistently outspent 3 to 1 by McDonald’s. Our paid media needed to generate free frequency through site traffic, video sharing, user generated content, blog chatter and PR. With great content, the simplest media strategies can work gangbusters, and with weak content, the cleverest media strategies can have little effect at all. Our media strategy of using TV to kick off a web storm worked because we had sticky content that people wanted to play with and riff off http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhF6Kr4ITNQ
