Lay’s to Launch Biggest Ever Global Integrated Marketing Campaign

Lay’s to Launch Biggest Ever Global Integrated Marketing Campaign

14:30 2014

Lay’s – the world’s top snack brand – is launching a major global integrated marketing campaign and new multi-dimensional promotional partnership featuring record breaking football superstar, Leo Messi. The campaign celebrates the simple pleasure of globally enjoyed Lay’s potato chips and extends across three executions: master brand communication, Lay’s Deep Ridged snacks and an additional commercial featuring two of PepsiCo’s flagship brands, Pepsi and Lay’s.

The overall campaign includes television advertising, out-of-home, digital, in-store and point of sale executions in more than 60 countries, and Messi will be on the front of millions of Lay’s packages around the world. The Lay’s campaign launches in select markets beginning today with remaining markets airing the commercials in the coming weeks and months.

“We are thrilled to be able to deliver the first-ever global equity integrated marketing campaign for Lay’s,” says Cristina Kenz, Senior Marketing Director Lay’s Global, PepsiCo Global Snacks Group. “Lay’s is the world’s number 1 snack brand and we now have a fantastic program that will unify the brand message throughout globe, using the universally beloved game of football as our foundation. As a passion point for spectators and participants alike, football is truly one of life’s simple pleasures and we couldn’t think of a better combination of the sport, its number one player, Leo Messi, and the amazing setting ofBrazilto showcase the simple pleasures of Lay’s.”

The master brand commercial and centerpiece of the campaign “Messi Photo,” was shot over the course of three days in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, and Barcelona, Spain. With the great taste of Lay’s potato chips at the centre, the commercial builds off the insight that people enjoy pinching a Lay’s whenever they are near one. “Messi Photo” shows that not even a world-class footballer can avoid his fans’ fingers. 

“Messi Photo” follows Messi as he crosses the streets of Rio, encountering fans who are clamoring for photos and autographs. With the international hit “Balada Tchê Tcherere Tchê Tchê” by Brazilian superstar Gusttavo Lima providing the infectious backdrop, “Messi Photo” ends with Messi able to even the score and pinch his own Lay’s chip when posing for photos with unsuspecting Lay’s fans. In select markets, those football fans will be prominent in their own right and feature a who’s who of global talent including William Levy (Mexico), Ahmed Helmy (Egypt), Cabral y Puya (Romania), Sergej Trifunovic (Serbia) and Iker Casillas (Spain). 

Expanding beyond master brand communications, Leo Messi will also appear in advertising for Lay’s Deep Ridged potato chips in some of the select markets where the new product is available. As one of the most celebrated footballers of all time, Leo Messi and Lay’s Deep Ridged chips will come together for one extreme pairing in a commercial highlighting the epic flavor and depth of the chips.

Finally, Messi will again take centre stage in a commercial for Pepsi and Lay’s – PepsiCo’s two global flagship brands who are both activating football programs in 2014. This commercial is the biggest global marketing initiative to feature both Pepsi and Lay’s products, and with football as a driver of awareness for PepsiCo’s food and beverage brands around the world, this campaign reflects PepsiCo’s broader strategy to combine the power of global brands, showcasing them better, together.

“Pepsi and Lay’s are two powerhouse global brands from PepsiCo, and football, with millions of passionate fans around the world, provides a tremendous platform to showcase how they can be enjoyed better, together,” says Lorraine Chow Hansen, President, PepsiCo Global Snacks Group.
