PROVO, Utah, Jan. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Harmon Brothers, the Provo-based social media ad agency behind the greatest viral ad in internet history, has earned national headlines and over 1.5 billion views for its social blockbuster ads such as Squatty Potty, Lumē, Chatbooks, Purple, among other hits. Today, the renowned social ad makers are introducing a new campaign called "Simplify Your Life" for Kodiak Cakes, a family company based in Park City, Utah that makes healthy pancake mixes that kids, and grown-up kids, love.

"We've done some incredible things in our careers, but renting a zoo and working with a 1300lb Grizzly was on a whole new level. This was a tremendously hard ad to create, but we believed in the creative vision and knew the ultimate product would be memorable, remarkable, and effective," said Daniel Harmon, Chief Creative Officer at Harmon Brothers. "We know families will love this fun-filled spot with a gigantic bear reminding you that you can have your protein pancake and eat it too."

The ad campaign highlights how healthy eating doesn't have to be a chore—and can actually taste great at the same time. Kodiak Cakes products are crafted with 100% whole grain and non-GMO ingredients to fuel any adventure for today's frontier.

The ad is a collaboration between Harmon Brothers and Kodiak Cakes, two nationally known companies that started as small family businesses in Utah.
