The campaign had social media abuzz with love for the joyous trio, growing the CDM Facebook following from 35 000 followers to over 350 000 in the first 3 months of the campaign. Using effective PR tactics Plato achieved R 1 871 343 in AVE (1:1) brand media coverage resulting in an ROI of 6:1.


The campaign received two Special Mentions in the Social Media and Consumer PR categories at the 2015 Prism Awards.
