From our friends at Mellow Mushroom...

Mellow Mushroom Launches “Burger Best Friends Forever” Media Platform

Mellow Hamburger and Veggie Burger, Carnie and Herb, Come to Life via Animated Short Film Series and Interactive Digital Campaign

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers is launching a multi-platform digital campaign, “Burger Best Friends Forever (BFF),” in support of the introduction of the new Carnie and Herb burgers nationwide.

The campaign’s playful animated short films feature anthropomorphic characters representing the new Mellow Mushroom burgers - Herb (a veggie burger from Seattle) and Carnie (a talking beef burger from Denver). Additional characters include deep-thinking Pretzel, athletic (light) Beer, bandmate Pizza and Carnie’s love interest, Cinnamon (pretzel.) The stories follow the friendships of the Mellow Mushroom characters, bringing them to life.

The video shorts and other campaign components will be featured across Mellow Mushroom's social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, ThinkNear and two custom Pandora stations.

The microsite for Burger BFF allows customers to engage with Mellow Mushroom’s Herb and Carnie and includes activities and features like Mad Libs-style story telling of your dream trip, Burger Buds Quizzes, Show us your 'Gram instagram campaign, and a sweepstakes - including the chance to win a trip to Seattle or Colorado.
