OREO: Dunk Challenge
OREO launched the OREO Dunk Challenge. The campaign kicks off in the U.S. and will roll out to more than 50 countries around the world as part of the OREO brand’s ongoing Wonderfilled movement. The OREO Dunk Challenge will feature a trio of high-profile dunkers, including International Recording Artist Christina Aguilera, Brazilian football star Neymar da Silva Santo, Jr. and Basketball Hall of Famer Shaquille “Shaq” O’Neal. Shaq and fans did the first official dunks of the campaign at the birthplace of the OREO cookie in New York City.
“I’m so excited to join the OREO Dunk Challenge,” said Christina Aguilera. “Dunking OREO cookies was a part of my childhood and I am excited to join Shaq and Neymar in this campaign! I can’t wait to hear of all the different dunks fans will come up with.”
“Dunking has been in my DNA for years, but it goes beyond basketball,” said O’Neal. “I’ve always loved dunking my OREO cookies in milk – it makes me feel like a kid like no other snack or treat, which is why I was excited to join the OREO Dunk Challenge. Being able to kick off the campaign by doing my first-ever dunk without using hands will always be a great memory for me.”

The idea of the campaign is good and the key opinion leaders are well chosen. Unfortunately, the communication of the campaign is not well executed as the results are not so great yet.
