To kick things off, Planters invited one of the best shouters they know, Coach Jim Harbaugh, to shout about his love of Planters snack nuts alongside consumers at a “Shout For Nuts” vending machine in Los Angeles.

The “Shout For Nuts” vending machine, featured in the campaign videos, is modelled to look like a life-size can of nuts and dispenses Planters nuts when people shout about their love of nuts into its decibel-measuring panel. The louder consumers shout, whether “I love nuts” or “I love mixed nuts” or “I love Planters,” the more nuts it dispenses.

“Coach Jim Harbaugh is a longstanding fan of Planters and Mr. Peanut, so we thought he was a perfect partner to help encourage other nut fanatics to shout their love for nuts,” said Camille Vareille, Head of Brand Building for Planters. “Plus, he’s known for shouting on the sidelines, so we know just how loud he can get.”

Fans can view a video of Harbaugh’s “Shout For Nuts” experience on YouTube.

“I’ve been a fan of Planters nuts for years so I was very excited when I heard that all I have to do is shout for nuts – something I’m already very good at,” said university football coach Jim Harbaugh. “The louder I shout, the more nuts I get. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.”

Planters, a brand known for satisfying salty cravings, created this program to address how cravings, however big or small, make consumers feel. When you crave delicious, fresh-roasted nuts, sometimes you want to shout it loud.

The “Shout For Nuts” campaign will be brought to life across online video and social media. Consumers that want to “Shout For Nuts” can also be on the lookout for the Planters NUTmobile as it travels across America. To find out when it’s in your city, visit
