Putting Mentos Gum on Gen Z’s radar with Woody and Kleiny.

The task

Mentos asked us to raise awareness amongst Gen Z of its fruit flavoured gum as a bold and adventurous choice. The brand was an official sponsor of Capital's Summertime Ball and tasked us with ensuring we created a buzz with fans on Wembley Way.

What we did

We identified TikTok superstars and pranksters Woody and Kleiny as the perfect duo to engage Gen Z visitors to the ball with Mentos. Our action-packed day included filming editorial and social media content, capturing authentic reactions to Mentos fruit flavoured Gum.

We worked closely with the talent to ensure key brand messaging was incorporated into the content without diluting Woody and Kleiny’s natural spirit.


Pairing our content with a report that looked at the age Brits are most adventurous at, we sold in our video and research results to national and lifestyle titles securing over 50 pieces of coverage, reaching over 1 billion people. Coverage included The Sun, Daily Express, Daily Star and Mirror.co.uk. Content also landed on Woody and Kleiny’s social channels, reaching millions more people who weren’t at Summertime Ball. Engagement levels on Instagram were at 4% an excellent result for such a high-profile account.

We were able to demonstrate that even with ‘no new news’ from the brand we could generate publicity and reach for Mentos. This campaign was signed off just three weeks before launch date, and the client was impressed with our agility and ability to respond quickly and accurately to the brief.

Pieces of Coverage

“We love working with Mercieca as they get what we need and know how we want to do it! They work as an extension of our team and we know when a brief is put their way a lot of creativity and enthusiasm will be involved! They are creative, well connected with influencers, and bring so much energy to our campaigns. For Mentos Gum we worked with Woody & Kleiny who were great talent to work with, bringing a great buzz and vibe for our PR content which landed some strong coverage.”
