Chevrolet #BestDayEver Campaign
Chevrolet wanted to launch a campaign to hint that something big was coming its clients’ way. It chose April 1st, 2015 to make it the best April Fools prank ever. Alec Baldwin, Ian Somerholder, Nikki Reed, Norman Reedus, and Olivia Wilde surprised college students across the country by posing as their substitute teachers.
Within the first 24 hours of the campaign, the videos, selfies, reaction videos, and editorial articles generated more than 1.5 million likes and shares. In addition, these numbers don’t include the videos, images, and messages students themselves shared about the #BestDayEver.
Samsung’s Oscars Selfie
In 2014, the host of The Oscars, Ellen Degeneres took a selfie photo with a group of stars using a Samsung Galaxy Note. The picture went down in social media history, receiving three million retweets in just two days.
It was also touted as the perfect product placement as 43 million viewers watched the stars snapping the photo during the event. Analysts estimate that Samsung, which was one of the event’s sponsors, generated between $800 million and $1 billion from this picture alone. Undoubtedly a powerful celeb endorsement.
Taco Bell’s Snapchat Takeover
Taco Bell tapped Snapchat celebrity Shaun McBride, a.k.a. Shonduras, to promote its Cap’n Crunch Berry Delights. By taking over the fast food chain’s Snapchat account, he managed to get the message across to his 100,000+ followers.
While the results of this campaign weren’t shared, Shonduras’ collaboration with Taco Bell was probably a big success. Taco Bell engaged him in its Super Bowl 50 campaign, resulting in 40,000 pre-orders of its cheese-stuffed chalupa.

They even created content based on some of those ideas. As a result, JBL’s CordFail campaign received 3.3 million social engagements. The brand itself succeeded in attracting over 5,000 new fans across Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Twitter, and Vine.
Your Celeb Endorsement Campaign
Undoubtedly, celebrities are powerful influencers. However, brands hesitate to choose them to market their brands because of fears such as:
Higher Costs – Some celebrities can cost up to six figures for a single endorsement.
Overexposure – Also, their audiences may believe that they’d endorse anything for money. Careful celebrity selection is necessary.
Overshadowing Brands – Stars can shine too bright, overshadowing your brand and products.
PMYB can help you overcome these and get the results you need with our network of 9,500 influencers that includes celebrities, bloggers, vloggers, professional influencers, micro influencers and content creators.
