Klondike multi-screen effort taps mobile to engage consumers

Klondike is using mobile as part of its multi-screen campaign that celebrates ?average men? across America.

The Klondike Unfoiled application challenges users to unwrap a digital Klondike bar as quickly as possible. The application is available for iPhone and Android users.

?Klondike Unfoiled reintroduces users to the nine Klondike bar varieties in an engaging way,? Rachel Hudesman, associate brand manager at Novelties Unilever Ice Cream, New York.

?Klondike Unfoiled also serves as an extension of the Everyman Challenges video contest,? she said. ?The app, like the campaign itself, celebrates how well an average guy can do life?s ordinary tasks in an above average way ? like rapidly unwrapping a Klondike bar.?

?We incorporated mobile technology into the campaign because it?s a natural extension from the viral video contest and online games we?ve created as part of the Everyman Challenges,? Ms. Hudesman said.

?After submitting a video to the ?Pack the Car,? ?Grab the Remote,? or ?Ball Toss? challenges, ice cream fans can continue to challenge themselves with a fun and interactive application, or online games,? she said.

Users can see a step-by-step demonstration on how to play the game.

The Grab the Remote challenge lets fans showcase a creative way ? with household items ? to grab the remote without ever leaving the comfort of their couches.
