The effort plays on how far ice cream lovers would go for Cold Stone's ice cream. It comprises three TV spots, web marketing--including the web site Loveit-Loveit.co--and radio.
The campaign dramatizes the ice cream lovers' journey to a Cold Stone Creamery, the mecca of ice cream, and then puts obstacles in their path, thus testing their desire for ice cream. The television spots are meant to be dramatic, humorous and a bit mysterious.
For example, one television spot features a young boy
approaching a Cold Stone Creamery. Inside he sees a few of his
arch-nemeses. A voiceover asks if the "insatiable draw" of his
favorite Cold Stone creation, "Birthday Cake Remix," will give him the
strength to open the door. Other spots borrow from urban legend and
pop culture, and feature Big Foot and an Heiress.--Karl Greenberg
