Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
Sport Club Corinthians Paulista celebrated in 2010 the club’s centenary. The club has more than 30 million fans, a group of people bigger than the population of many countries, such as Portugal, Austria and Switzerland combined, for example. In the year of its foundation, in September 1st 1910, the purpose was to found a team of the people. One hundred years later, to formalize this country, F/Nazca put into effect for Nike the existence of the Republica Popular do Corinthians. Many actions made the fans official citizens of this republic.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
In Brazil, football is the great national sport. And the devotion for the local clubs is even bigger than the love fot the Brazilian national team. For this reason, they created a Republic Document Kit, that contained a passport, an ID, a Birth Cerificate and a Constitution.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
In 2010, the biggest local club, Corinthians, completed 100 years of existence. That means more than 30 million fans celebrating. And Nike wanted to give them a gift as big as they deserved: a country. República Popular do Corinthians. And to guarantee the recognition of República Popular do Corinthians as a country, we developed everything a nation has: a coat of arms, documents, legislation, a flag, currency, heroes and an embassy and a president.

Describe the results in as much detail as possible with particular reference to the RESPONSE of the target audience including deliverability statistics, response rates, click throughs, sales cost per response, relationships built and overall return on investment.
400 kits were distributed to illustrious Corinthians fans. The citizens of República Popular do Corinthians needed to have their own. That generated a buzz. And US$ 2,4 million in free media coverage. But, besides that, it aroused a desire for the documents among the Corinthians citizens. As a result, 100,000 document kits were sold at the Nike and Corinthians stores. In other words, US$ 5 million dollars in revenue.
