KIT KAT & BuzzFeed

A Case Study

As a globally recognized chocolate brand, Nestlé’s KIT KAT has always owned the concept of “having a break.” Staying true to its mission and giving yet another reason for someone to smile on their break, KIT KAT partnered with BuzzFeed Australia. KIT KAT’s BuzzFeed AU program’s goal was to reinforce KIT KAT’s ownership of the break occasion, spark social conversation, and drive continuity of the KIT KAT Break Rescue campaign.

Together, KIT KAT and BuzzFeed AU created a total of 4 original pieces of content around the theme of the “break.” Two of the four posts, 8 Brilliant Ways To Break Up Your Daily Routine and The 15 Most Satisfying Moments In Your Day, focused on positive vibes and making the best out of an ordinary day.

12 Interruptions That’ll Ruin Every Aussie’s Break and 11 Signs That The Universe Is Telling You To Take A Break also talked to “the break” theme while integrating KIT KAT’s video assets into the posts in order to drive its Break Rescue campaign message home.

BuzzFeed AU carried out TrueView video seeding on both of KIT KAT’s Break Rescue video content. Seeding ran in stream across BuzzFeed’s YouTube channel, embedded players on the BuzzFeed site, and retargeted BuzzFeed video viewers, maximizing distribution and reach.
