Creeeeeeeak: Chupa Chups opens haunted house on Instagram

ASIA-PACIFIC - Lollipop brand Chupa Chups, through longtime agency BBH Asia Pacific, has invited mobile users to explore a choose-your-own-adventure-style haunted house constructed on Instagram.

Client: Perfetti Van Melle (Chupa Chups)

Agency: BBH Asia Pacific

Market: Global

Campaign scope: YouTube trailer (above), interactive still images and nine Instagram videos on Instagram @getlolli, plus Facebook support.

The hook: The brand sought a shareable experience to raise brand awareness ahead of the year's "biggest candy-sharing event" at the end of this month. Players help a finger character search for his kidnapped friend, a lollipop, encountering allusions to the horror-movie canon along the way.   

Press release quote: "The game uses Instagram’s native features to guide players through a haunted house filled with quirky, spooky messages inspired by popular horror movies and characters such as Psycho, Dracula, The Ring and Freddie Kruger."

Comments: The call is coming from inside....your mouth!
