Solo man goes hard

Inspired by hard-core events like Tough Mudder, Solo’s latest campaign created by BMF Melbourne sees the Solo Man tackling some of these dirty and challenging events.

Using the tagline ‘Go hard, Go Solo’ and the hashtag #gohardgosolo, the campaign will run across social, TV and digital platforms.

“There are some Aussie icons that are best not messed with, and Solo Man is one of them,” Carlos Furnari, creative director of BMF Melbourne, said.

“Besides, he could wrestle us to the ground with his chest hair alone. But while the man mountain will be sweating it up on our screens again, he will be just one part of the thirst crusher puzzle.

“What really excites us is that we're also launching this new campaign through limited edition SOLO packs. These packs then become the major element behind a social media promotion that encourages Solo fans to collect, snap and hashtag the packs for their chance to win.

Encouragingly, people are already doing this before we've even launched the campaign, or told them what to do. This is the type of work BMF Melbourne is looking to do more of.”

Troy McKinna, general manager marketing at Schweppes Australia added: “We are hugely excited by this campaign. We set out with a very simple objective, to appeal to a new generation of thirst crushers. The brand has a long history with older consumers but the younger guys don’t know who Solo Man is and what he stands for. We needed to modernise the brand and what better way to engage our audience than through Facebook, Instagram, Vine and Twitter.”
