Post Foods' Honey Bunches of Oats has enlisted pop duo Domino Saints for its latest ad campaign geared toward Hispanic markets. The pop duo from San Juan, Puerto Rico, collaborated in the exclusive "Smile While You Shake It" music video.
Inspired by samba beats, the song and signature dance incorporate the cereal box and breakfast utensils as percussion instruments. National bilingual media, social media and website (bunchofbeats.com) encourage consumers to upload their own versions of the dance, share them digitally, and be eligible to win prizes.
"Rather than focus on product placement opportunities in music videos, we wanted to take it a step further and create a brand anthem that relayed the spirit of Honey Bunches of Oats and rallied our fans," said Tony Shurman, VP of marketing at Post Foods. "As the brand deepens its commitment to the Hispanic community, we saw an opportunity to partner with a crossover artist and create a music video that spoke to all our Honey Bunches of Oats fans. We hope this song strikes an emotional chord and gets our fans smiling, shaking and sharing."
The "Bunch of Beats" sweepstakes runs from now through June 15. One video submission will be selected randomly every week throughout a 31-week period to win a $500 Visa gift card, for a total of $15,500 worth of prizes.
