From the 8th Annual Shorty Awards

Summer of #5TruthorDare

Entered in Influencer & Celebrity Campaign, Multi-Platform Campaign

About this entry

The goal of this cross-platform campaign was to create a cultural "movement" by promoting and socializing #5TruthorDare to revolutionize the traditional game play amongst millennials; make it uniquely 5 Gum Truth or Dare.

Leveraging Viacom's full arsenal of marketing asset (high profile show talent, Pulse Real Time Marketing, social talent, custom content across screens/channels, MTV social platform (Echo), Twitter Amplify, digital ad products, mtvU sampling), we created brand awareness, brand lift and brand affinity for 5 Gum during two distinct key promotional periods immediately before and after the MTV Video Music Awards - the biggest millennial event of the year.


Why does this entry deserve to win?

To engage the fans, we tapped into MTV's most popular show talent - Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf), Jillian Rose Reed (Awkward) and Katie Stevens (Faking It) - to create custom promo spots featuring game play. The spots also featured social talent Ricky Dillon so that he could support across his social platforms. Spots were featured on-air, supported online and pushed out socially.

As part of the Pulse Real Time Marketing program, we created a custom editorial videos featuring real time pop culture newsworthy moments titled "Big Truths or Most Daring Moments of the Week" presented by 5 Gum. For eight weeks, we deployed and promoted the series, leveraging all social channels; ours (MTV, mtvU, MTV News), theirs (5 Gum) and others (Tyler, Jillian, Katie, Ricky, Carly) to create a mass social "blanket" of chatter around the brand's hashtag and game play.

As a result, multiple pieces of video content were created.

-3x :45 custom co-branded MTV show promo spots versioned and refreshed to run across two flight periods

-4x :30 custom MTVu hosted segments featuring channel talent playing 5 Gum Truth or Dare on college campuses

-2x custom YouTube videos from Ricky Dillon, promoted and supported across social channels

-8x weekly custom editorial video series titled "Most Daring" or "Big Truth" Moments of the Week

-5x custom editorial articles supporting the weekly video series embedded

-1x custom ad unit promoting the weekly video series and also incorporating 5 Gum Truth or Dare game play for fans


Heavy editorial and social support not only by MTV but also supported by talent:

-22x FB posts

-10x Instagram posts

-7x YouTube videos

-65x Tweets
