The story behind the Heinz Ketchup Carol
It all started when Heinz Philippines pondered over this question: “What would happen if we use artificial intelligence to remix Filipinos’ fave holiday carols together with their favorite food served with ketchup?”
To find out, the ketchup brand went on social media and asked its fans to share their song and food picks. While the chosen tunes featured mostly popular titles, the answers for food were all over the place — from the expected fried chicken and fries to strange choices like pandesal and mango!
The result: the weird yet wonderful Heinz Ketchup Carol that is sure to crack you up! Even funnier is the fact that these influencers somehow managed to make dance steps to this tune— with matching Heinz Tomato Ketchup bottles as props. Check them out below:
