Dr Pepper Searches for One of a Kind Fans to Feature in Upcoming Advertisements
Fans invited to tell their stories for a chance to "Be the Next /1"
PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
From an air guitar god and a boxing model to a roller derby queen toting
five kids around town, Dr Pepper has been celebrating truly One of a
Kind personalities in its advertising this year. Now the brand is
searching for someone else who is as unique as its blend of 23 flavors.
Dr Pepper announced today "Be the Next /1" — a national consumer contest
that offers fans the chance to star in upcoming national TV and digital
advertising. Fans are invited to submit 60-second videos online at
DrPepper.com explaining what makes them One of a Kind and why they
should be selected to appear in the next Dr Pepper ad. Submissions will
be accepted through June 19.
The brand's current campaign, entitled "/1," or "one of one," features
real people with inspiring real stories. Each spot in the
campaign has highlighted a One of a Kind personality, and now Dr Pepper
will turn to its fans to share their own life stories for a chance to
join the movement.
"Dr Pepper is One of a Kind and so are our fans, which is why we have
such a deep and meaningful connection with them both online and
offline," said Leslie Vesper, director of marketing for Dr
Pepper. "We're excited to offer our fans—the real people who have grown
with the brand and continue to inspire us—a chance to show millions of
people what makes them ‘one of one.'"
After the submission window closes on June 19, Dr Pepper will select its
top ten videos as semi-finalists for the "Be the Next /1" contest.
Semi-finalists will then have the opportunity to rally support from
people in their communities and across the country to gather votes for
their submission on DrPepper.com, as well as through a personalized
hashtag on Twitter. The five semi-finalists with the most votes will
move on to the final round, where the brand will choose one grand prize
winner to appear in the national ad.
