Pepto Bismol Piñata Smash

Pepto-Bismol® is a medicine designed to relieve five stomach problems: heartburn, nausea, indigestion, upset stomach, and diarrhea. No matter what your belly woes, Pepto has you covered. The brand is being promoted online in Piñata Smash, an online interactive advertising campaign in which viewers choose their own form of obliteration. Visitors to the Pepto-Bismol YouTube channel were given the ability to select a piñata and the way you wish to destroy it, followed by a customized video. If you’ve ever wondered what it looks like to ninja chop or pummel a piñata with a brick, your wait is over. The campaign was promoted through Facebook and Twitter social media.
