Smith’s Gobbledok launches on TikTok

Smith’s has released its TikTok channel @smithschipsaus by bringing back the “much-loved” 80s icon, Gobbledok.

Since launching Gobbledok on TikTok, Smith’s has seen a legion of fans embrace his quirks as they reimagine the character for a modern-day audience. Despite Gobbledok’s 80’s heritage, the character is proving to be a hit across a range of generations.

To kick off the launch, Gobbledok emerged from the back of the pantry where he’s been living for the last 30 years. After running out of Smith’s Chips, otherwise known as “CHIPPPIIIIEEESSS”, Gobbledok ventures out and into 2022, and finds things a little different to how he last left them. From discovering voice assistants and new chip designs to encountering a robo vacuum for the first time and mistaking it for a pet.

Since launching earlier this month, Gobbledok has helped to grow Smith’s TikTok channel by over 2000% with the launch of Gobbledok being the channel’s best performing piece of content to date. The content showing Gobbledok emerging from the pantry after running out of ‘chippies’ has gathered an impressive 1.4 million views, over 1300 hours of play time and a reach of 1.17 million users so far, according to Smith’s.

Smith’s Senior Brand Manager Sam O’Donnell says: “There’s nothing quite like bridging generational divides all in the name of CHIPPIES and we’re so excited to do this through Australian icon, Gobbledok. Launching his own TikTok account is a great opportunity to connect and engage with our consumers. We’ve loved the response from fans so far and can’t wait to share what he’s been up to after all this time.”
