Live Client: 5 day sprint


Popeyes was craving to hack themselves into March Madness.

So we bought on the madness for the only thing that makes sense in sports: Popeyes' chicken wings.

Mad as a chicken wing parties

While Popeyes can't get into the games, they can get into hotel parking lots near the stadium.

Which is where they'll throw pre-game parties and give fans merch to wear into the arena if they complete mad challenges. And after the game, winners and losers can return to the truck for free wings.

Random Acts of Madness

Popeyes can't mention March Madness teams but they can mention the schools in the tournament and put on stunts at these colleges to create buzz in the press and on social.

Popeyes will use the maddest social platform, TikTok, to engage fans and put Popeyes wings in the their court.

Rose: The ACD of Popeyes shoutout the copywriter, mwah, for nailing their brand tone of voice. I went rosy red from compliment. 😊

Bud: It was a fun challenge tackling this brief in a week and seeing what we're capable of making under a time crunch. 


Thorn: We were stuck in the Brandcenter basement for 5 days straight. Some say our spirits are still trapped there.
