As part of a major launch campaign across TV and social media in Denmark, Arla created a series of short vertical ads for mobile on Facebook and Instagram.
The ad creative was developed by Arla’s in-house team, The Barn, and featured bright primary colours designed to reflect the colourful swirl of the yoghurt. One ad highlighted the nutritional benefits of Explorers, such as its reduced sugar and calcium for healthy teeth and bones. Another ad featured a fast, colourful animation, followed by a child showing a delighted reaction to the bubbles in the yoghurt.
All of the ads followed best practice for mobile video creative, lasting no more than 10 seconds and showing the brand within three seconds. The ads ran in Facebook and Instagram feed and in Stories.
