Welcome to the month of manliness. The month where you allow testosteron to come to the fore of life and embrace the carpet covering your upper lip. But let us not forget the real reason that this initiative came about being so ridicuously manly, and that is to support your fellow bro’s who have gone through and battled cancer. Some won, some unfortunately lost, but without a band of brothers coming together, the losing column will keep growing.
Band together and support each other and grow a mo fo sho :)
How to Grow a Moustache with Nick Offerman, that’s what that awesomesauce is.
So I did a bit of a rework there on the title and I now think this awesome parody is now untacheable. That is untouchable for those of you who didn’t get it the first time round – just like Movember. It’s ok, we understand. No, you can stop feeling sorry for yourself, but as punishment you have to donate extra ok?
This rocking parody from Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues is a parody of Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe” and takes on a new edge with Movember just a couple days around the corner. Men everywhere can relate to this at some stage I am sure. Well except for those hairy mofo’s that had to shave at break at school. Go on, take a watch and then empty out that big sack of money you have sitting there for a good cause.
A while back (holy crap, over a year ago) Omo launched their liquid washing detergent. The marketing that has been attached to such a traditionally boring product has been nothing short of sintilating and brook-pooping exciting.
Now, being 21 I have absolutely no interest in washing machines or anything of that kak. Clothes go in, get washed, come out clean finito. But somehow this campaign has got me interested and I would border on saying washing detergent brand loyal. Cha bru, I am getting involved in that domesticated shit.
How is that for building on the success of their TV advert that enjoyed so much success. We have an office meme to “just one small cap is enough”. Everyone gets it and loves it and it has just stuck around. Now with the introduction of some brilliant remixes, that fire is igniting all over again to raucous rapture.
Ooooooh eh eh! Just one small awesome advertising campaign is NOT enough!
So what do you get when you cross Coke Zero and the new James Bond movie called Skyfall? You get flipping awesome that’s what! How coooool is this for a campaign??
I love how they managed to get random guys to just go ahead and do this. This campaign is seriously well put together and at the moment has amassed over 3 million views on YouTube. That is the power of technology and social media coming together with a touch of brilliance. If that doesn’t get you excited about marketing and tech then who knows under what boring rock you live.
