Describe the objective of the promotion.
Four years after the introduction of the Fusion razor, the most successful product launch in Gillette’s history, the conditions surrounding the debut of the Fusion ProGlide could not have been worse. A global economy in free fall. Shoppers trading down or out of multiple product categories. Compounding matters further, Gillette’s competition was about to bring a new razor to market that promised the same core benefits as their new product. Gillette needed a disruptive tool that could stop grab-and-go shoppers in the aisle and convince a sceptical audience to try an entirely new shaving experience.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
The Fusion ProGlide’s unique design features thinner, finer blades that offer less tug and pull for an effortless shave. But the product’s primary benefit can’t be seen by simply looking at the head of the razor. After talking with guys about this new technology, we reached this simple conclusion: Gillette had to show, in a dramatic and disruptive way, that these blades are better. We partnered with a display manufacturer to develop the “Tiffany Glorifier,” a shopper-activated tool that lights the razor blades so they shine like jewels when a customer walks by the installation.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
Our shopper needed to be disrupted from his grab-and-go shopping behaviour. To that end, we created a motion-activated Gillette Fusion ProGlide display. When a customer walked past the display, lights made the featured blades shine like jewels, adding interest and intrigue to the presentation.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
Not only did this tool create excitement among shoppers and retailers alike, it elevated and enhanced the premium nature of the product. Prominently displayed at leading U.S. retailers for over 52 weeks, The Fusion ProGlide Razor “Tiffany Glorifier” continues to influence the public’s attitude and change their purchasing practices.
