Nestle Kicks-Off Its First Super Bowl Appearance With Teaser Ad Full Of Innuendo

Butterfinger site The Super Bowl ad frenzy has already started, with many brands like Jaguar posting “teaser” ads in anticipation of their monumental Super Bowl advertising investments. Nestle is another brand to get in on the pre-game action, releasing a campaign for its new Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups candy.


Nestle posted its “Butterfinger Cups 2014 Big Game Ad Teaser” video on YouTube yesterday, as well as using the video on the ButterfingerCups.com site to promote its latest product.


Starting with the line, “The relationship between Chocolate and Peanut Butter is about to change,” the video uses a couples therapy theme – with a husband representing peanut butter and a wife representing chocolate – to push Nestle’s Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups.


From the “Try-Curious” magazine article the couple is reading, to the framed cherry and banana prints on the office wall and a cheese and crackers couple carrying an extra large pretzel stick, there is no lack of sexual innuendo in the ad.


The video and website both promote the hashtag #CupsTherapy, playing on the couples therapy theme, and include links to Facebook, Twitter and Instragram pages for the new candy. The website also includes a call-out, encouraging viewers to, “Watch Our Ad During the Big Game! 02.02.2014.”


According to an AP report on Yahoo Finance, Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups is Nestle’s first new product in five years, and has been tasked with the goal of taking market share from industry leader Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.


The AP article claims Nestle has no plans to release its first-ever Superbowl ad before the game, but says it will continue the couples therapy story line used in the teaser ad.

The Super Bowl – and all the Super Bowl ads – will air February 2 on Fox with kick-off scheduled for 6:25 p.m. EST.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
