Four Seasons Condoms have appointed Emotive as their content marketing agency for 2015, responsible for social video, content strategy, delivery and amplification.
Emotive launched three weeks ago in Australia, bringing a new model to the content marketing landscape – helping marketers inject emotion into video creation and guaranteeing that this content will be consumed by the right audience.
To launch the partnership Emotive has created a new video campaign that celebrates Mardi Gras called ‘Are You Coming?’ going live nationally today.
Graham Porter, managing director of Four Seasons Condoms, the Australian-owned condom company said: “Emotive’s unique approach to content marketing made them an easy choice for Four Seasons Condoms to partner with. Our objective is to become an always-on publisher and given the entertaining nature of our products – emotionally charged content is key. I am thrilled to be working the team at Emotive and look forward to unveiling some exciting activations over the course of the year.”
Emotive’s executive creative director, Charlie Leahy, said of the idea: “The key to this activation was to create a video that not only entertains and connects with the audience on an emotional level, but also allows Four Seasons Condoms to communicate an important message in a humorous way. Having looked into what was resonating with the audience, we came up with the concept that blends two classics – Meg Ryan’s orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally and the ‘First Kiss’ digital smash hit. It was a slightly weird shoot but everyone involved got really in to it.”
The social video content piece ‘Are You Coming?’ has been posted on the Four Seasons Condoms YouTube channel and promoted to their Facebook and Twitter fans. In the first few hours of release, the video had over 20,000 views on Facebook.
