Speed Stick l Handle It

Idea

"Sweating on the inside? Handle it on the outside." To break through a category that's saturated with underarms, characters and caricatures, we wanted to focus on moments that require men to step up and handle it, no matter what. For the NFL Super Bowl XLVII, an orchestrated IMC campaign reached our target by TV, the Speed Stick YouTube channel, online display, on-the-ground events, Twitter and a partnership with @TeamVic. This highly digital campaign started with a Twitter contest and the final TV commercial was produced with crowd-sourcing platform, Tongal.

Results

The campaign received over 400 million impressions from earned media and over 1.5 million video views on YouTube.
