Brief Explanation
FedEx wanted a radio campaign which informed shippers that FedEx is the best way to ship their heavy weight items. To help us, FedEx had research that told us office shipping guys think of themselves as the go-to guys in the office - almost like the office hero. A person who’s always able to get things done. So for our campaign we created a character who embodied all those characteristics: 'Keith, the office shipping guy.'In the ads he essentially was the office hero. A guy who could solve any problem because he ships everything with FedEx. He even had a theme song.
