Julia Dorofeeva, Chief Marketing Officer of United Confectioners, which owns the brands Babaevsky and Mega Drive, said:
“The issue of contrasting generations is as old as the world, but people of all ages can be united. What unites most gamers and esports fans of different ages? They truly love competitive video games and chocolate! And we decided not only to talk about our brands in an exciting way, but also to consider the confrontation between ‘fathers’ and ‘kids’ through the prism of esports and gaming. We will bring the ‘generations’ face to face in the Battle Hard Challenge, where the older side will be supported by ‘Babaevsky’ chocolate, and the younger ones — by mini-bars with peanuts ‘Mega Drive’”.
Sergey Barkhudaryan, Chief Commercial Officer, ESforce Holding:
“We are happy to welcome our new partners and start our collaboration with a unique interactive campaign that combines two brands. The esports audience is very adventurous, so we decided to involve them in the eternal struggle of generations in a sweet way with valuable prizes. It is expected to be a fierce battle, but no matter which generation wins, chocolate will be the real winner!”
