Notes: 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of SNICKERS “You’re Not You When You’re Hungry” campaign. The challenge we faced was to find a new way to evolve the campaign, making it relevant to a rapidly-changing audience and media landscape, while also retaining SNICKERS sense of humor and relatability. It also needed to launch on America’s biggest and most scrutinized stage – the Super Bowl.

The solution was to go huge. Instead of giving one person a SNICKERS to get them back on track, we fixed the whole world with a giant SNICKERS. The film was supported with a campaign that included building a Guinness World Record-breaking SNICKERS, teasers where everyday people identified humorous modern-day problems & follow-up spots that showed how some of these problems had been fixed.

“Fix The World” was released at a time when people all over the world, especially in the US, shared the sentiment that things were more out of sorts than ever – from politics to technology creep to rapidly-changing social & cultural attitudes. We knew that people could feel it, and by coming right out and saying it, in a tongue-in-cheek way, SNICKERS message could land with a wide audience.
