Ruffling the Feathers of the Chicken Establishment
The Naked Chicken Chalupa was an all-new product that was sure to turn heads for all the wrong reasons. It was a taco with a shell made entirely out of fried chicken. And we were Taco Bell, a brand known for seasoned beef, nacho cheese and tortillas. What business did we have selling such a bizarre fried chicken product? But by pitting ourselves directly against fried chicken conventions like breasts and drumsticks our launch was successful, outperforming the Taco Bell limited-time-offer (LTO) sales average by 50%.

The McWhopper Proposal
In 2015, Burger King was outspent, underarmed and overwhelmed in the incredibly competitive fast food category. Our idea began with an open letter in the New York Times; a peace offering to our biggest rival. Immediately the McWhopper idea took on a life of its own, making headlines across the country. While the campaign twisted its way through popular culture we continued to stoke the flames with iconic billboard placements, social influencers and a carefully crafted media kit disguised as a website. Although the offer was declined, the campaign was an overwhelming success - shifting all brand measures, selling a truckload of Burgers. Oh, and we helped World Peace, too...
