The fast food chain celebrates its new chicken sandwich in latest David&Goliath campaign
In the latest campaign by David&Goliath, titled 'New Chicken Dance', Jack in the Box takes to TikTok to celebrate its best chicken sandwich they’ve created yet – the brand new Cluck Sandwich by partnering with global superstar Becky G and various TikTokers, world renowned choreographer Richy Jackson and creative music company MAS – Music And Strategy to launch the remix and remake of the Chicken Dance – turning it into TikTok’s newest trend.

“TikTok is one of the biggest social media platforms around, and Jack has always been a brand with its finger on the pulse of pop culture,” said Lixaida Lorenzo, group creative director of David&Goliath. “We wanted to spread the word about Jack’s new, better-than-ever chicken sandwich. And given the popularity of fun choreography on TikTok it just made sense to do it with a new, better-than-ever chicken dance. By tapping top musicians, a world-class choreographer, and a beloved pop star like Becky G to spread the word, this campaign tells the world about the amazing new Cluck Sandwich in a culturally relevant way that creates authentic connections with the brand.”

The campaign kicked off on TikTok where Becky G teased a 'big reveal' with Jack in the Box. On the heels of the teaser, she debuted the brand new track and tight, trendy moves of the new Chicken Dance, prompting TikTokers not to 'chicken out' and learn and share the dance on their TikTok and Instagram using the hashtag #JacksNewChickenDance. As an added bonus, Jack in the Box will be donating $1 to Jack’s charity partner No Kid Hungry – up to $100,000 for every share of the new Chicken Dance between 17th December - 14th February.

The hero spot of the 'New Chicken Dance' campaign, which launches today, is a :30 spot featuring a rather content, dancer flapping his arms like a chicken, and 'getting down' to the timeworn dance when Jack and Becky G slide onto the scene and show him how it’s really done. A number of TikTokers join in as they all together bust a move to the new catchy tune with a big reveal at the end - 'New Chicken Dance', 'New Chicken Sandwich'.

“Having the opportunity to combine two things I love, dancing and helping others, is something I always strive for when collaborating with brands. When I was approached with the chance to help create a TikTok dance that will raise funds for No Kid Hungry with Jack In The Box, I was so excited to participate”, said Becky G.

To amplify the campaign, Becky G will be joined by TikTok influencers who will be posting videos of themselves doing the new Chicken Dance and encouraging their followers to learn and share the dance, and also try Jack’s new Cluck Sandwich. Additional campaign elements include a :15 TV spot, digital and social integrations.
