Respecting the Remix:
How to Surprise The Unsurprise-able Generation


A remix isn’t just that obscure, guilty pleasure of a song that somehow ended up in your “Slow Jamz” playlist. At least, not anymore. It’s actually a bona-fide brand strategy developed by Barkley, and it just so happens to be the fastest track to millennials’ hearts.

Want to know the secret? Molly Griffin and Brandon Painter of Barkley-Kansas City are prepared to share how they leveraged Twitter and a next-generation pop-up shop at SXSW to generate over 23 million social media impressions for their client, Hershey’s TAKE5 Bar. You will also gain insight on modernizing the trick-or-treat experience, discuss how they elevated the Uber model to bring surprise vehicles to riders and  remixed the idea of candy packaging by providing party-goers with a DJ toolset on their TAKE5 boxes.
