When legendary candymaker Mars sought to steal share from York Peppermint Patty, the idea was to create iconography that lived beyond mere bite and smile. Both :30 TVCs “Fairytale” and “Perfect Match” drove sales and outpaced the company’s ability to keep the product stocked, contributing to a brand share increase of .3 points in 2007. The commercials were taken off the air in advance of the 12-week media buy as demand outstripped supply of the product. This was solely attributed to the work created by the agency. As a result, UniWorld was named Mars Agency of the Year in 2008.
