Always’ #LikeAGirl Campaign
Always’ #LikeAGirl campaign revolutionized the negative connotation that comes with, as the campaign states, doing something “like a girl.” Always asked consumers to participate with this simple plea, “Join Always in our epic battle to keep girls’ confidence high during puberty and beyond. 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.“
Purina Puppy Chow Presents Puppyhood
This next video is one of our personal favorites. Who doesn’t love cute animals? Purina Puppy Chow worked with Buzzfeed to create the Puppyhood series. The original campaign was intended to be only be one video. 16 million views later (and counting), the two joined forces again for a regular video series to encourage dog owners to feed their puppies the right food…AKA Purina Puppy Chow! Not only do the videos encourage brand loyalty, but they will 100% warm your heart. Who else wants to now adopt a dog after watching this?
Momondo DNA Journey
Momondo is a travel website that specializes in price comparisons on flights, hotels, and rental cars. The brand asked 67 participants to take a DNA test to determine their genetic make-up. Grab a Kleenex, because the results show how much we all really have in common. Alongside the video, Momondo also ran a contest which sent winners to the origin country found in their DNA.
