The Best of the Best in the World GLOBE

DDB Shanghai, Tribal DDB Shanghai China for “McDonald’s Cheer for China”

McDonald’s, a foreign Company, wanted to be more than just one of 56 or so Sponsors of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. DDB China and their sister, DDB Tribal Shanghai, found a way for them to become an integral part of it.

The “I’m lovin it when China Wins” campaign brought the 2008 Olympics to the people and became a movement for millions all over the country.

The Agencies seamlessly weaved the global tagline into everyone’s dream, for China to win the most medals and lead the World and a cheer. Millions had a chance to connect with the Olympics by learning a special cheer and performing it every time China won.

Using a viral interactive campaign, video “cheering stations” in McDonald’s stores and even a “Cheer for China Online Reality Show” the Promotion culminated in a Guinness World Record with the Winners of the Promotion and 1,200 cheerers, outside the Olympic Bird’s Nest Stadium.
