Describe the objective of the promotion.
Expand awareness of the Kotobuki Enema "One Push" product, create fans, and develop a presence that challenges the rival company with the top share.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
Toilet paper is produced. It is freely distributed in communal facilities etc. Create buzz with an advertisement that would be picked up by a range of media to instill the idea that if you need an enema, a "One Push" Kotobuki Enema is the thing.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
Recognition of Mune Pharmaceutical Kotobuki Enema "One Push" toilet paper shot up thanks to humorous toilet paper advertisements. Various media picked up the topic of Japan's first accordion-style, low-waste enema. As a result, sales of the product increased by 1.3 million units.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
People with constipation spend a long time on the toilet. The intention was to catch their interest by printing entertaining and empathetic advertisements on toilet paper which they can read to pass the time. Also, users can tear off a sheet to show to their friends, or take it to a pharmacy as a reminder of which product to buy. In this way, the advertisement aimed to promote sales by creating a buzz.
