Entered in Entertainment, Multi-Platform Campaign


Sitio do Picapau Amarelo was a successful children's show

in the past and it was relaunch on Globo Play, TV Globo's on-demand app.

We need a new audience. But we can get it?


When you want to connect a highly popular 70s show to a much younger audience,

who you gonna call?

A seven feet blonde alligator that shoots lightning bolts from her claws and that also happens

to be a global internet celebrity, that's who.

And to make the bridge between those 2 worlds we built the comeback story of Cuca,

one of the show's main characters and a global internet celebrity.

Not only was the campaign a huge success, but so was Cuca and the show.
