About the Work

To get Gen Z talking about YouTube's new product YouTube Shorts, they partnered with 39 hyper-relevant Creators on limited edition snack foods - 'bite-sized YouTube'. Each item was completely custom and based on something iconic about that creator. For example, Benoftheweek got famous for making a video pretending to burn his mother's house down by microwaving a tin of beans, so he got 'explosive beans', dangerously spicy dried wasabi beans. Saucy Santana got 'cereal gworl' based on his iconic song 'material gworl'. The list goes on (and on, and on). Every product was taken from design through production in under 2 months, and then made available at a bonkers 90's inspired Drive-Thru restaraunt, and at home through an online competition.
