Describe the brief from the client
Our insight was born from the intersection of consumer behaviors and a marketplace weakness. Internal Intel research showed that young people worldwide are in search of empowerment and use technology to find their way through life. Furthermore, syndicated data showed that 75% of 14-25 year old consumers view their computers as more of an entertainment device than their TV.
A competitive audit revealed that the world’s leading computer brands had yet to develop campaigns that leveraged more than basic social networking posts. With this information, we recognized an opportunity to make consumers an active participant in the marketing process.
Creative Execution
The Beauty Inside is a partnership between Intel and Toshiba. The objective was to refresh the “Intel Inside” campaign and feature the Toshiba Ultrabook as part of the life of young adults. The story of Alex, a man that wakes up every day in a different body, creates the message of “what’s inside that matters” for Intel, and the fact the character used his Ultrabook to document his daily faces gave the computer a friendly, welcome presence through the entire series.
Creative Solution to the Brief/Objective.
The Beauty Inside combined social media, audience participation and Hollywood talent to deliver a single social film experience to the entire world. We launched the trailer with an open casting call on Facebook, allowing anyone from around the world to audition to play the role of Alex. Two weeks later we launched the first of six weekly episodes, each of which incorporated auditions from our viewers. This unique creative solution helped create excitement around the new Toshiba Ultrabook, engaged millennials and helped drive brand affinity and consideration for both Intel and Toshiba.
