PLANO, Texas, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ruffles potato chips have long been the solution to one of the greatest problems guys face — as in, why can't there be a chip that holds more dip, packs more flavor, and has more crunch? Given the brand's role in solving this important age-old dilemma, Ruffles is now embarking on a mission to shine a spotlight on other ridiculous "problems that aren't really problems" with a new digital marketing campaign known simply as #RoughLife. Whether it's having their potato chips break in a thick dip, or their friend block the television during the biggest play of the game, the Ruffles brand is here for its fans, eager to lend those in need a helping hand.
Celebrating its role as the star player (and snack of choice) for any football gathering, the Ruffles brand will kick off its #RoughLife campaign by asking people to Tweet their trivial problems using the hashtag #RoughLife for a chance to win NFL-related prizes. From now through the start of the 2014 NFL Draft on Thursday, May 8, the Ruffles brand will follow #RoughLife Tweets, selecting 150 winners who will earn NFLShop.com gift cards. "Problems" can range from their favorite drink not being a twist off, to being out of town when their favorite NFL team hosts one of its biggest rivals. People can visit www.Ruffles.com/NFLDraft for more details and official rules.
The Ruffles brand has enlisted the support of newly appointed New York Jets wide receiver, Eric Decker, who stars in a digital short, released today, that features Decker helping a guy through his own #RoughLife moment – having planned an unforgettable date night on the same night as the NFL Draft. Decker's recent experience — moving from a franchise where he was already well-established, to a team in one of the most exciting cities in the world — is in itself a #RoughLife experience that has cemented Decker's role as a relatable expert who can help people face their own #RoughLife moments. The video can be seen at www.YouTube.com/Ruffles.
"When I first signed with my new team, I thought about how I was going to have to move my family across the country, join a new team environment, and build new relationships. But then I realized — 'this isn't really a problem — I'm going to play for a great organization in the greatest city,'" said Decker who was drafted to the NFL in 2010.
"The Ruffles brand has long prided itself in being a solution to a major problem our fans face — needing a sturdier chip to withstand the pressure of their thick dip. Now we're bringing to light the multitude of other 'problems' our fans deal with on a daily basis, offering a platform for them to voice their quote-unquote rough stories," said Christina Menendez, senior director of marketing, Frito-Lay. "The #RoughLife campaign celebrates the absurd and hilarious nature of consumers' trivial problems that have permeated pop-culture in recent years."
While #RoughLife launches leading up to the NFL Draft, the campaign will continue to live throughout the year on the Ruffles Facebook and Twitter pages. This includes the introduction of more #RoughLife digital content and opportunities for people to share their #RoughLife moments.
