Heinz is hoping to stir up British passions about two of its iconic sauces, Tomato Ketchup and HP Sauce, with a U.K. social campaign encouraging people to vote for their favorite. The activity, by We Are Social, will include what the agency calls "light-hearted propaganda" on social media -- like pictures of bacon sandwiches and fry-ups -- asking which would taste better with the food. It's all aimed at driving people to a website, redvsbrown, where they can vote one way or the other with a chance of winning a year's supply of their favorite sauce. Meanwhile, radio stations Absolute Radio, Magic, Place and Kiss will also broadcast live discussions about the sauces.
