BIGS Biggest Upset

  • Created a March Madness NCAA Basketball Tournament promotion BIGS Sunflower Seeds to leverage the term “seeds”.
  • The PR campaign offered one million free sunflower seeds to the college or university of a #16 seed if they defeated a #1 seeded team.  The campaign was designed to drive traffic to the BIGS social media platforms.
  • Retained former NCAA Basketball Champion Ed Pinckney of the 1985 Villanova “Cinderella” team to serve as the spokesperson for the program.
  • Staged a media tour with Pinckney in order to discuss the potential upsets of the tourney with sports media outlets including more than a dozen sports talk radio stations.
