Spotify Builds Entire Campaign Around Weird Playlist Names

Spotify Builds Entire Campaign Around Weird Playlist Names
SHARE
THIS



Spotify has taken advantage of all that juicy data it has about user’s listening habits with its latest campaign that digs into all the weird and wonderful playlist names like “sorry I lost your cat”, “I don’t know how to make a playlist” and “global warming is real…let’s dance”.

This campaign follows Spotify teaming up with weather forecasting provider AccuWeather to launch a new tool that generates music playlists based on the moods of weather patterns in different locations.

The campaign by Wieden + Kennedy New York includes out-of-home placements which will be up for six weeks  in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. With online videos featuring musicians Alessia Cara, DNCE and D.R.A.M., who all marvel at their absurdity of the playlist:

Outdoor campaign:

Unfortunately my favourite weird playlist, “Songs that drunk white girls excited”, didn’t make the cut.
