KitKat is bringing a fresh take on the enduring 'Have a break, have a KitKat' campaign by taking on modern life's frustrations with a new brand platform; Snap out of it, created by J. Walter Thompson, Sydney.
The new work looks at how the little things in life, such as inbox-overload, the spinning wheel of death or flat pack nightmares can often drive us slightly crazy.
Says Simon Langley, ECD, J. Walter Thompson, Sydney: "KitKat has been helping Australians take better breaks for close to 80 years now, but how and why people take breaks has evolved and the new campaign reflects this paradigm shift.
"By taking on the clutter of modern day life, we're reminding people that when life gets a little hectic, sometimes you just need to 'Snap out of it' and have a break."
The first film in the campaign focuses on two characters, Harold and Allen, building a catapult in medieval times. But we quickly realise that this is no ordinary catapult, as it has been delivered in flat-pack form. And as with all flat-pack furniture, the less-than-detailed instructions provide no shortage of challenges.
Says Anna Stewart, head of marketing, confectionery, Nestlé Oceania: "Our latest campaign further strengthens KitKat's position as the brand that helps people make the most of their breaks."
