How WHISKAS united all cat-addicts and won back peoples love
WHISKAS is the brand that created the market for prepared pet food in Russia. WHISKAS led the market for many years, but as competition intensified, its position came under threat. In order to defend its position and win back the audiences affection, WHISKAS called for all cat lovers to unite and admit their cat-addiction on Russias Cat Day. A Cat-addiction ode, written by Semyon Slepakov, triggered a wave of declarations from people across the country. More than 18 million views and high engagement in the campaign led to growth in the brands market share and a historic high in penetration.
