Walkers in Star Wars tie-up

Walkers Snack Foods is launching its biggest promotion to date, offering two prizes of £1m in a tie-in with the movie Star Wars Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace. A £2m TV campaign for the promotion breaks on July 14. The ad, by Abbott Mead Vickers.BBDO, plays on the lizard-like tongue of Star Wars character Jar Jar Binks.

Walkers claims the promotion’s prize fund, which includes two £1m prizes, £500,000 worth of £5 cash prizes and 100 million Jar Jar toys, is worth more than £200m. Buying is through MediaVest.
