Oreo - Whisper Fight

February 03, 2013 |

How do you fight over the best part of an Oreo in a library? By whispering, of course, and don’t dare raise your voice even if it gets ugly. "Whisper Fight," created by Wieden & Kennedy, appeared in the first Super Bowl since Kraft Foods split in two, with Oreo's side of the company taking the name Mondelez.

But what really put Oreo in the spotlight was, ironically, the blackout at the Superdome in the third quarter, when Oreo’s digital agency 360i jumped at the opportunity and sent out the tweet that stole the show. "Power out?" Oreo posted to Twitter. "No problem. You can still dunk in the dark." The tweet was retweeted 10,000 times within one hour and became the gold standard for real-time marketing.
