Domino’s brings back unexpected star in latest yodelling campaign

The work, by VCCP London, is the next iteration of the "Domin-oh-hoo-hoo" campaign

By Creative Salon

New creative work for Domino’s by VCCP London reveals new deals under the well-received "Domin-oh-hoo-hoo" campaign umbrella.

The integrated campaign, “Betty-Hoo-Hoo”, was created in tandem with VCCP’S CX and production arms VCCP CX and Girl&Bear and takes one of the characters from last year’s spot and places her centre stage.

The creative spotlights Betty, who appeared in the first Domin-oh-hoo-hoo spot, following consumer interest about her own pizza eating habits after the first yodel campaign.

The TV ad opens with Betty sitting in her armchair at home, putting the yodel call out to her friends asking who fancies a Domino’s. We then see two of her friends respond who are in the middle of a game of bingo. They reply with a cheery 'Great call, Betty!’ which then kicks off other characters in the film yodelling their own orders such as a ‘Texas BBQ,’ ‘Vegi Supreme’ and ‘Mighty Meaty’.

The playful creative draws to a close with a man, mid chest wax, yodelling out that all delicious Domino’s pizza’s will be half price this January. His yodelling yelp is then interrupted by the two gamers from the first commercial, as his cries echo into their home. The final scene concludes with a classic Domino’s moment showing Betty and all her friends enjoying a Domino’s feast together and finishes with the voiceover declaring that Domino’s customers will receive 50 per cent off pizza when £30 or more is spent online.

The 30” film called was directed by Somesuch’s director, Sam Hibbard, who created all previous spots in the series.

Like the previous chapters, the campaign will continue to be audio-first and will also roll out across radio with a series of announcements to highlight the new deal. The radio ads make light of stereotypical dreary feelings of January felt by most following Christmas, and encourage people to view the month more positively, whilst highlighting the nationwide offer. ‘Dreaded January, cold, dark… Did we mention the cold? The only thing we’ve got to look forward to after all this “Januaryness” is, ugh, dreaded February.’ Wish it could be January for ever, January.’

Sarah Barron, chief marketing officer at Domino’s, said: “At Domino’s we’re proud our pizza is the meal of choice for crowd-pleasing moments between family and friends. We want to kick off 2022 in style whilst highlighting what our customers love about us– generous portions and fantastic value with market-leading prices and deals. Betty was the unexpected star of our first DOMIN-OH-HOO-HOO ad, and we’re delighted to bring her back to the centre stage where she belongs!”

David Masterman, creative director at VCCP, added: “If ever there was a month that needed a bit of yodelling, it's January. So we thought, to jolly things up a bit, we'd revisit Betty from our first yodel ad, as she calls upon her rag-tag collection of mates. DOMIN-OH-HOO-HOO!”
