Describe the objective of the promotion.
Objective : Promote the new Bic Flex 3 disposable shaving razor.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
First, we sent customized tee-shirts to 20 influential bloggers of different domains (sport, videogames, marketing...). Articles were written and the virality of the campaign began. The video was shared on social networks like Twitter and Facebook and even on French TV.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
What better way to demonstrate the smooth moves than with a completely shaved man in a swimsuit sliding facedown on a sheet of ice? The video has more than its share of juvenile humor to make it a pass-along sensation.
The game is Human Curling. It’s an á la carte campaign with a humorous video, advertgame, sweepstakes, and Facebook presence. We want to show that BIC’s Flex 3 razor has a “surprisingly smooth glide” with every shave.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
