The creative solution came from the positioning of the competitors (market leader's) campaign.FAST TRACK The competitor was telling the young target audience to 'MOVE ON' as an attitude.We decided to go exactly the opposite way and tell the young what no one had ever told them,WASTE TIME.The desired outcome was exactly what we wanted. It created a big buzz across media, moved the brand to the youth's consideration set. Which was evident from the huge sales volume during the campaign period.
The strength of the idea comes from the fact that we flipped the meaning of TIME on its head.The originality comes from the fact that no one had ever said it.It was most appropriate for a brand trying to launch a new watch in a market where the leader was strongly entrenched in the target audience's head for the last 10 years.Also it was radical telling the young to 'waste time' when the establishment has always been telling them to use time judiciously to make their future.Plus selling the concept 'WASTE TIME' for watch brand was certainly was radical!
Client Brief Or Objective
