Social distancing is tough. Being lonely and isolated from friends and family — while important — just sucks. Even as stay-at-home orders are being lifted in parts of the country, it’s becoming harder and harder for people to stay safely inside. And seeing the same somber, black-and-white, light piano music ads that every brand was doing over and over doesn’t help. We wanted MoonPie to be an answer to both — to offer a fun way for consumers and its fans to fight boredom and stay inside.
We brought MoonPie's legendary voice to life with an innovative use of technology. Enter MoonPie MoonMate: an Amazon Alexa skill, a hilarious “virtual roommate” that keeps you company, makes you laugh, and extends MoonPie’s iconic brand voice into real life via Alexa-enabled devices. And yes, while it's designed to keep you company with hilarious conversations and make it a little easier to pass the time at home, it can even pay your rent (just ask).
MoonMate gave people a reason to smile. In just the first week, we saw more than 10,000 Alexa skill activations:
And it gave MoonPie a big boost:
And, finally — and perhpas most importantly — MoonPie saw a 21% surge in product sales in 2020.
