Dancing in the Street for Kit Kat


Nestlé and JCDecaux must’ve suspected that Colombians were inherently less inhibited than puritan-based cultures when it came to literally dancing in the street because their recent collaboration transformed three Bogotá bus shelters into dancing machines that rewarded participants with free Kit Kat bars.

In an effort to reinforce the “Have a break, have a Kit Kat” tagline, these interactive bus shelter installations invited pedestrians to shorten their perceived wait times by having their own private dance party before enjoying one of those infamous chocolate-covered wafers from the machine dispenser.  

As the video below shows, the installation is a three-step process of learning the dance steps, taking the stage and enjoying your “break.” And even if the campaign didn’t reveal the next Colombian version of Gregory Hines, it certainly appears as if people had fun. Sometimes, that’s all a brand needs to accomplish in order to stay top-of-mind with its audience … or at least become our Installation of the Week.
