THE IDEA

Jimmy Buffet's Island Tea Campaign

When Jimmy Buffet launched his new line of Island Teas (in partnership with Tradewinds Tea), he wanted to make a splash and spread awareness to Parrotheads nationwide. 

THE IDEA

THE IDEA

Working with an integrated agency team, we created the “Sip and Sing Your Way to Paradise” campaign. We spent the summer on tour with Jimmy and then brought the idea online with a “Cheeseburger in Paradise” video contest.

We boarded our tour bus and traveled from city to city, setting up shop at concert tailgates, sampling new product and hosting Jimmy Buffett karaoke.

THE CAMPAIGN HUB & DIGITAL CONTEST

THE CAMPAIGN HUB & DIGITAL CONTEST

To extend the party online, we invited Jimmy fans everywhere to visit our landing page to join our  “Cheeseburger in Paradise” karaoke contest. They could upload their own music video for a chance to win a Margaritaville themed vacation, concert tickets and plenty of Tradewinds Tea.
