Describe the objective of the promotion.
To launch the Mega Lifesciences laxative brand Goezy with minimum budgets that maximized hype.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
We decided to recreate the feeling of having to spend hours in the toilet when you are constipated. So we briefed artists to create sculptures on the theme ‘Struggle’ using toilet paper rolls. The sculptures were exhibited in pharmacies and supermarkets. Each piece carried titles which mentioned the artist’s name and the number of hours he spent in the loo. Goezy took ownership of helping relieve the artists of constipation.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
This one-of-a-kind launch made headlines and generated a lot of free media publicity for Goezy. Stocks were sold out in the first three weeks after the communication campaign was initiated.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
The toilet paper sculptures were a welcome relief from the run-of-the-mill tent cards and Point of Sale material exhibited at the pharmacies. These sculptures drew immediate attention, with a twist of exaggeration, exhibiting that time spent in the toilet could be minimised by using Goezy.
