DIARY: RANT

Oh dear, oh dear ... the person writing about Michelle Steggles and her inability to ’think outside the box’, appears to be a bitter and twisted individual. This uninformed and aggressive view could not be more inaccurate, based on the recent launch of KP Hardnuts, created by Emap and Starcom.

The budget was minimal - so the solution needed impact to ensure maximum

exposure.



The campaign included radio airtime and promotions on Kiss 100, an

advertorial in Heat, plus advertising in Heat, Sky and FHM, and a link

to FHM’s website.



The main event was a celebrity gala screening of The Italian Job on its

re-release. The film proved to be a perfect vehicle for reaching our

target market.



Our listeners and readers were given the chance to win tickets to the

screening, some KP Hardnuts and an Italian holiday, simply by proving

how hard they were. KP sponsored the gala screening and after-show

party.



This certainly suggests to me that Michelle and her team are more than

willing to ’think outside the box’ and to ’take risks’.



I can only assume this vindictive person has faced rejection and mirth

when pitching ideas to agencies. He or she should stop whining and,

instead, try generating something fresh and exciting.
