From the 11th Annual Shorty Awards

VH1 Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party + Hidden Valley Ranch

Gold Distinction in Multi-Platform Partnership

About this entry

VH1 partnered with Hidden Valley Ranch to create a 360 convergent program tied to the season premiere of Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party (M&S) to showcase the product versatility of Hidden Valley Ranch (HVR) Seasoning and to promote the brand's "Amp up the flavor" creative messaging. Our cross-platform approach includes a multi-episode sponsorship with organic, active in-show integrations with the HVR seasoning in M&S along with lead-up social promotion from VH1 and talent to drive tune-in to the show.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

Strategically placed in the Burger and Crab episodes, the in-show integration allows for organic and seamless product interaction with Snoop Dogg as he lets the audience in on a little secret for how he "amps up the flavor" to his burger + fries recipes with HVR. Through a series of verbal mentions + product shots showcased HVR Seasoning's versatility. Martha Stewart also joined in on the fun and complimented Snoop's secret recipe ingredient, calling out HVR!

To spread awareness of the HVR integration on social, we repurposed the in-show segment to create comedic GIFs/Memes of Snoop distributed across VH1, Martha and Snoop's handles (across Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat), allowing "ranch" fans to share in the fun!
