“Always #LikeAGirl”

No one says “Like a Boy” so why do we use the term “Like a girl”?  Great message, relevant topic, and nice execution. A necessary video that addresses a real problem.. and a topic that make sense for a brand like Always to be talking about.

“Using #LikeAGirl as an insult is a hard knock against any adolescent girl. And since the rest of puberty’s really no picnic either, it’s easy to see what a huge impact it can have on a girl’s self-confidence. We’re kicking off an epic battle to make sure that girls everywhere keep their confidence throughout puberty and beyond, and making a start by showing them that doing it #LikeAGirl is an awesome thing.

“In my work as a documentarian, I have witnessed the confidence crisis among girls and the negative impact of stereotypes first-hand,” said Lauren Greenfield, filmmaker and director of the #LikeAGirl video. “When the words ‘like a girl’ are used to mean something bad, it is profoundly disempowering. I am proud to partner with Always to shed light on how this simple phrase can have a significant and long-lasting impact on girls and women. I am excited to be a part of the movement to redefine ‘like a girl’ into a positive affirmation.”

Burberry and Google have come up with a charming idea to spread some love across the globe in a more personalized way. The two teamed up to put their own spin on a digital postcard with the launch of a romantic and innovative new project called, “Burberry Kisses,” (Launched June 2013) – a visually immersive experience that utilizes new technology and allows you to send a digital copy of your kiss to anyone in the world. This campaign is a charming and witty way of humanising technology in order to interact with the consumer and engage them in a more personal way.

“Unbelievable Bus Shelter | Pepsi Max #LiveForNow”

Pepsi captivates their audience with the unexpected. What makes this campaign so successful is that it’s so unexpected that its confusing. This confusion sparks curiosity and the audience spends time with the ad trying to understand what is happening. Once they have figured out what’s going on, they don’t stop interacting there. Because this ad offers something so unexpected once people understand it, all they want to do is play with the bus shelter technology and take photod with it. The “cool” factor that pepsi was able to create with this campaign provided something even more valuable then captivating the publics attention, it gave them the opportunity to create content that was spreadable.
