And that’s just the start. Over the next few days, flirty tweet turned into more extreme displays of love. McCain felt Heinz a tray of floating french fries to eat in the bathtub after a long day. Heinz introduced jewelry, sharing a gold locket filled with ketchup-showing how McCain dunked its way into Heinz’s heart. Risque photos and hand-carved potatoes were exchanged.
Later, new billboards were spotted in front of McCain and Heinz’s corporate headquarters in toronto.
“Things seem to be moving really fast for this couple,” he said Daniel GotlibAssociate Director, Brand Building & Innovation, Heinz. “Which is funny, because Heinz Ketchup is notoriously slow.”
“Fries and ketchup are at the height of their power together,” said Matt Kohler, Managing Director, Canada Retail, McCain. “They bring to mind history’s most compelling couples: they’re great on their own, and unstoppable together.”
With just a few days until Valentine’s Day, Canadians can visit McCain and Heinz social channels to follow this developing love story. The best is yet to come.
