Lotus Biscoff, the popular coffee accompanying biscuit brand, has teamed up with Belgian international footballer Eden Hazard in a new viral media campaign.

The campaign will include worldwide activity, starting on March 15 with a ’Perfect Kick’ viral movie showcasing Hazard’s unique footballing skills when challenged to hit a target hidden amongst ten thousand coffee cups.

This will be supported by a social media campaign, on-pack stickers, a dedicated website (www.lotusperfectkick.com), and a competition in which 50 customers will win a chance to meet the Chelsea football star.

The activity will support the global brand positioning of ‘Every Coffee Needs a Lotus’. The two minute ’Perfect Kick’ film will be pushed online, with supporting point of sale material.

The on-pack stickers will feature on more than 90 million packets of Lotus Biscoff biscuits worldwide, including Lotus Biscoff 250g, and jars of Lotus Biscoff Smooth Biscuit Spread 400g & Lotus Biscoff Crunchy Biscuit Spread 380g.

Lotus Bakeries category marketing manager Frances Booth said: “Having such a famous name as Eden Hazard associated with Lotus Biscoff provides retailers and coffee shop owners with a significant incremental sales and footfall opportunity. Not only will it be a draw for regular loyal Lotus Biscoff customers, but also for the millions of UK families with footballing mad children who will jump at the chance to meet their hero. With a comprehensive social media campaign as well as a dedicated website, there is no doubt that customers will be actively searching out retail packs featuring the Belgian footballing genius.”

Lotus Biscoff biscuits were created to complement a freshly brewed cup of coffee and it is the number one complimentary saucer side accompaniment item in the UK hospitality sector.
