Hootenanny and MARC USA recently launched a variety of social additions to an integrated Ruby Tuesday campaign that began with a highly visible spot in 2017.
The range of content within the collection spans multiple categories, but gorgeous food shots and snappy messages form something of a running theme.
Two Facebook videos — “Chicago Steakhouse” and “Say Cheese” — combine mouthwatering burgers, chewing action, and swift regional montages to score tasty points in 20 seconds.
The fully integrated campaign is expected to provide an exponential boost to Ruby Tuesday’s existing popularity. Hootenanny Editor Sean Halvorsen credits MARC USA’s collaborative expertise for much of the success.
“Not only are they a super talented and fun group, but they also treat me and the rest of the team at Hootenanny as creative partners,” he explains. “It’s been really awesome to see our partnership grow, knowing how much trust the agency places in us on both the creative and technical level.”
MARC USA officially became Ruby Tuesday’s AOR in the beginning of 2017. Since then, the agency has relied on Hootenanny for a significant amount of work on the brand.
Halvorsen — who works alongside editors Liz Tate, Graham Metzger, and Nikki Vapensky — helped get the campaign rolling when he cut a spot that rode a seven-week TV buy across broadcast and cable channels early last year.
Hootenanny Executive Producer Don Avila and Producer Samm Smith produced the campaign. Finishing and Rotoscope was handled by Hootenanny’s Jim Annerino and Eddie Loera. Nolo Digital Film’s Elliot Rudmann helmed the color correction, and CRC’s Mark Ruff handled sound design and mix.
