Revels Election Revels Eviction campaign was the opportunity for the consumer to help NPD by selecting which flavour they wanted to get rid of. The idea was to generate public debate and participation in 'evicting' the least popular of Revels' six flavours out of the bag — to be replaced by a mystery new flavour. The campaign included a TVC and print work pointing to a microsite featuring video footage, where users could 'vote' and watch their least favourite Revel be expelled in a variety of methods. From there they were also directed to discussion groups on Facebook, where they could defend maligned flavours or whip up support to oust the most unpopular.
The campaign made Revels number one in its category sales.
With a target of 100,000 votes, there were nearly 400,000 in total - with 150,000 cast from within the rich media ads.
There were also 2,000 wall posts on Facebook, and extensive media and PR coverage as a result
