Over the past decade, non-dairy milks have skyrocketed in popularity. And pre-pandemic, oat milk was emerging as the star. Now, you can find it everywhere – from work-from-home kitchens to big chain coffee bars.
Looking to tap into that, Chobani, the top seller of yogurt in America, recently launched 2 new oat milks. To announce it, they turned to Movia and their agency Horizon Media for a month-long truck-side mobile ad campaign.
Clever headlines spoke to the moving medium itself, engaging people with humour, and simple, bold graphics. Seventeen delivery trucks with a target of 30 million impressions were deployed across the US – from Sacramento to Tampa – for a total of 8 major markets.
Residential and food service delivery routes were chosen, to catch people already in the mindset of either drinking or buying milk alternatives. By letting consumers know that their much-loved yogurt brand now offers an oat product, Chobani was able to give people a reason to pull over their carts and check it out!
