Global Snacking Powerhouse Makes Very First Big Game Local TV Advertising Buy that Uses Programmatic Software
San Francisco, CA; Emeryville, CA; New York, NY – January 30th, 2015 – Today, TubeMogul (NASDAQ: TUBE), a leading enterprise software company for video advertising, and WideOrbit Inc., the leading provider of advertising management software for media companies, announced that Mondelēz International will be the first-ever marketer to programmatically buy broadcast TV advertising during the Big Game. The ads will air on Sunday in Erie, Pennsylvania, and are part of Mondelēz International’s commitment to use programmatic buying to enhance its media effectiveness.
Mondelēz International will run two 15-second advertisements on Sunday, Feb. 1, one for OREO cookies and one for RITZ crackers.

This pilot will help us learn how to transform media buying with leading-edge technology,” said Laura Henderson, Associate Director of U.S. Media and Communications at Mondelēz International. “Data-driven buying is the future of TV and media. We believe it will play a key role in improving our ROI, and helping to fuel growth for our Power Brands.”
“We continuously look for new ways to experiment and collaborate with our creative and media partners,” said Janda Lukin, Senior Director OREO North America. “We’re thrilled to give our new ‘Play with OREO’ campaign additional visibility through this exciting new channel.”
“Mondelēz International is a true pioneer,” said Brett Wilson, TubeMogul CEO & Co-founder. “The Big Game is the pinnacle of brand advertising, and the fact that a global powerhouse like Mondelēz International is buying TV inventory programmatically on the world’s largest stage proves that software can transform video advertising at any level.”
