Describe the campaign/entry:
V Skills. 24 essential life lessons printed on 14 million cans across the country. A simple scan of the can with a smartphone unlocked an entertaining how-to guide on everything school forgot to teach you.
Creative Execution:
24 branded content videos, co-created with a variety of directors, production companies and notable influencers relevant to our target demographic, including sketch comedy trio Aunty Donna and action-film directing duo and YouTube sensations RackaRacka. With a wide variety of skills, including ‘folding a fitted sheet’, ‘smoke-bombing’, ‘applying sunscreen, ‘whistling’, ‘escaping alien abduction, ‘saving dollars’, ‘detecting lies’, ‘jumping over stuff’, ‘taking a selfie’ and many more, there was something to help everyone be a bit better at life.
Over 30 million video views of skills content globally. 5.5 million YouTube impressions and reached over 1.7 million 18-24 year olds on Facebook, accounting for approximately 65% of the total Facebook audience for this demographic. With Facebook penetration recorded at 99% for this age bracket, this would mean that almost every 18-24 year old in Australia would have seen at least one V Skills video.
1060% increase in engagement with the V brand on Facebook, with the sentiment towards the campaign overwhelmingly positive.
Most importantly, sales jumped 11% over the campaign period.
By teaming up with popular content creators and existing on Millennials turf - the internet - we created a suite of non-ad 'how-to' videos that demonstrated our brand promise in a fresh, relevant way. Without censorship or shameless product placement, we brought our audience a series of useful and entertaining tutorials that spoke their language.
Insights, Strategy and the Idea:
Whilst the brand appeals to Millennials who are frequent drinkers, light drinkers are a bit more skeptical. To them, energy drinks are a necessary evil, so we needed to show them just how necessary we could be.
So we decided to live our brand promise of being 'The Massive Hit That Improves You A Bit' by creating content that would marginally increase their day to day skills.
