Title 1: Snickers Gate - Tweet
Date of Release: 2019-11-20
Notes: For the past 10 years Snickers has signed each of its campaigns with “you’re not you when you’re hungry.” In France in November 2019, we took the tagline to the next level. We imagined the consequences of hunger on their own production teams in the real world. We deliberately replaced Snickers bars with Bounty bars, without touching the wrappers, before placing them into sales point. Then we waited for the consumer’s reaction. 24 hours later when everyone thought it had been a genuine error on our part, we revealed the hoax via a film posted on Twitter, in response to #SnickersGate.

Note for the jury: Allergens contained in Snickers and Bounty bars are the same. The brand did not expose its consumers to any risk.
