Published on 12th September 2017

Written By

One of the most memorable and cited “April Fools” brand pranks this year was SodaStream’s ‘NanoDrop’ – the “faux” product created in partnership with Paris Hilton.

The prank was launched by Los Angeles-based Worldcom Partner, The Pollack Group  together with Tel-Aviv based Worldcom Partner, Now-You Global Communications, in support of its client SodaStream USA and in coordination with SodaStream HQ’s creative team in Israel.

The purpose of the “April Fools” campaign was to use disruptive marketing video to continue to reposition SodaStream as a sparkling water company, rather than a cola maker. The video achieved a wide audience reach and drove traffic to the company’s website. The PR campaign resulted in millions of media impressions as well as millions in estimated ad value. It also communicated important brand and corporate social responsibility messages.

To learn how PPMG and Now-You Global Communications brought this campaign to life, read the SodaStream NanoDrop case summary.
