Del Campo Saatchi & Saatchi, led creatively by Maxi Itzkoff and Mariano Serkin has created a new breed of microwave for their client, BGH.
“QUICK CHEF MUSIC” is the first-ever microwave that plays music when food is ready.
The idea emerged when we sat down with our client to think about what we could communicate about the “BGH QUICK CHEF” microwave, as the model was exactly the same as the previous years. So we came up with an almost unthinkable idea, to make a product innovation, something that would take us months of testing, plus patent and legal approvals. But as the slogan of our agency is “Nothing is Impossible,” a team from Del Campo Saatchi & Saatchi got straight to work.
Six months of testing culminated in a revolutionary invention, unprecedented in the history of the microwave oven: BGH QUICK CHEF MUSIC, a microwave equipped with speakers and a USB port, so that each person can upload the song they want. We launched a limited edition of 1000 microwaves, which sold out in just one week.
The product was received so positively that BGH QUICK CHEF MUSIC will be produced as a regular model in 2012.
The objective? To eliminate the unbearable BEEP BEEEP BEEEP noise heard from microwaves around the world. And, of course, to sell a lot of microwaves.
