Insights, Strategy & the Idea
To communicate the importance of changing your mattress, we wanted to connect with and build awareness among an increasingly relevant target for the brand: young people.

The challenge: to do this with a low-budget action, with no conventional media plan.
Target: Young people aged 25 to 35, changing their mattress for the first time.
Message: People are reluctant to part with their old mattress, even in the knowledge that it is losing them valuable sleep. So getting rid of it is akin to saying goodbye to some of your nightmares, which is why the idea was to say a very special goodbye to those nightmares in the shape of a mattress.

Creative Execution
During a working day and before the public’s eyes, 7 young artists were invited to express their nightmares freely on old mattresses. The public and the mass media were invited to watch this live painting process which we organised in Hub Madrid. The mattresses would subsequently be exhibited in different Noctalia stores around Spain and eventually destroyed, as a kind of collective exorcism.

Results and Effectiveness
With a very limited budget of 8,000€ we obtained excellent broad coverage in our target’s preferred media, valued at 65,000€. News programmes, radio programmes, blogs and news portals all reported on the event, a novel action that helped to position the mattresses of the traditional Flex company in the most important place in the world.
