G.H. Cretors

Since the day that Charles Cretors invented the first popcorn machine back in 1885, G.H. Cretors has always been about creativity and popcorn.

We needed a way to push the nation’s #4 popcorn brand into its next phase of creative invention, so we asked Grammy Award Winning Artist Sir Mix-a-Lot to “mix” an original track inspired by and created entirely from G.H. Cretors “The Mix” popcorn.

‘THE MIX’ HERO MUSIC VIDEO

 
Can popcorn inspire creativity? Sir Mix-a-Lot would say yes. In fact, he just made a song with us entirely from G.H. Cretors popped corn sounds.

Can popcorn inspire creativity? Sir Mix-a-Lot would say yes. In fact, he just made a song entirely from G.H. Cretors popped corn sounds.

Our best mix = Sir Mix A Lot’s best mix! Listen to his song made up of the sounds of GH Cretors popcorn.

We’re always cooking up something new at G.H. Cretors HQ. A song using just the sounds of popcorn mixed by Sir Mix-a-Lot? Yes please! Check out the full video at meetthemix.com

All our social ads drove to a landing page where people could check out “The Mix,” locate stores and buy G.H. Cretors popcorn on Amazon.

RESULTS

We exceeded our goals far beyond the media benchmarks.

The FB/IG/YT campaign had an estimated 272 million+ impressions with nearly 60% of people served these ads watching at least 30 seconds of the hero video, while 39% watching the entire 90 second video!
