In 2019, Orion Pictures asked for our help in resurrecting the iconic horror film, Child’s Play.

We were tasked with driving interest and awareness of the film’s theatrical release, with a particular focus on enticing modern audiences for the revival of the 1980s cult classic. But how does one go about capturing the attention of overstimulated young horror fans in a modern world?

To resurrect the film, we decided to use Chucky’s mischievous personality and let the evil doll loose on the Internet.


Our strategy: Use Chucky’s mischievous personality to our advantage. How? By letting the evil doll loose on the internet.

To begin, we wanted to make an unexpected splash, so we started on a network where the most jolting surprise users are accustomed to is a distasteful color clash: Pinterest. We disrupted their experience by placing seemingly normal pins on their feed... that is, until Chucky slashed his way through the ads, startling Pinterest users in an unforgettable way.

Next, we took Chucky’s mischief a step further by developing the first ever branded Reddit bot, allowing horror fans to interact and play with Chucky themselves. Programmed with over 600 custom responses, you could chat with Chucky, ask him to draw you a picture, tell you a joke, or even play a series of creepy games.

After getting word of Child’s Play out on Pinterest and Reddit, we needed to continue driving awareness of the film in a big way. To do so, we made a total of 100 videos that were syndicated across social, digital, and broadcast TV.


The Reddit bot killed it; it was deemed the most engaging ad on Reddit ever, winning 10 Reddit awards and generating over 43,000 comments and counting. In total, we generated more than 18 million impressions.

And, our top-performing spot slashed up the competition, out-performing overall and testing at a 4.5% share rate.

Ultimately, we were given a task by Orion, and we executed. The campaign proved that Chucky still has an edge that modern audiences die for.

Pinterest Ads FAQ

What is Pinterest Advertising?

Pinterest Advertising gets results, especially when it comes to lower-funnel events and audiences. An impressive 85% of users have purchased a product they learned about on Pinterest. The channel’s sponsored content has a cost per conversion (CPC) that’s 2.3x more efficient than other social channels. Compared to competing channels, Pinterest Advertising provides a 2x higher return on ad spend (ROAS) for retail brands.

A successful Pinterest Advertising strategy uses one or more of these visual ad formats:

  • Standard Pins: Showcase products or branded content with Pins that fit in seamlessly with organic in-feed content.
  • Video Pins: Tell an engaging brand story and leverage Pinterest’s max width option to expand content across the mobile feed.
  • Carousel Pins: Display multiple products or features in an interactive ad that includes up to five cards with individual links.
  • Shopping Pins: Promote product Pins with shopping ads designed to send users to your product catalog or landing page.
  • Collection Pins: Mix and match branded video with lifestyle content to capture interest and drive conversions efficiently.

Who should run Pinterest Ads?

Businesses that want to tap into a curious, engaged user base should use Pinterest Advertising. About 85% of users rely on the channel to plan projects, and holiday planning can begin up to nine months in advance.

With Pinterest Ads, you can reach more than 450 million monthly active users and a rapidly growing audience of Gen Zers. With an effective campaign, you can capture initial interest, ensure your brand remains top-of-mind, and drive conversions when users are ready to purchase.
