New KIIS Campaign Comically Adds Logo To Real Life Scenarios Via ARN And Emotive

The KIIS Network has announced a new campaign featuring its iconic logo plastered across everyday scenarios to comical effect, thanks to the ARN and Emotive agency.

“KIIS it Better” uses the iconic KIIS logo to inject a little vibrancy into the lives of its listeners. Each station in the KIIS network is a reflection of the city it serves, so it was important to find a creative vehicle which could unite the network but also let the unique personalities of each station shine through.

KIIS Drive Show hosts Will and Woody said: “It’s taken 7 years to feature in a TV ad. And with 7 years of really hot content at their fingertips, it’s nice to know they found 4.5 seconds of material that they deemed worthy of marketing. Hopefully one day we’ll get a carpark as well.”

“KIIS it Better” is Emotive’s first campaign for the KIIS Network since being appointed as the creative agency for ARN, Australia’s leading audio company and home to KIIS, Pure Gold, CADA and iHeartRadio brands. The campaign launched on Sunday 14 August and run across TV, BVOD, digital, social and out of home.

Lauren Joyce, chief connections officer, ARN said: “KIIS is a relatable, fun brand that doesn’t take itself too seriously. This campaign reflects that, gives a taste of the on-air content and leaves audiences wanting more (which they can of course get by tuning into our stations). I’m also relieved it’s finally live and to have Will and Woody off my back. There’s only so much nagging one can take.”

Paul Sharp, creative director, Emotive said: “It’s one of those super-rare occasions when a branding device can actually work as a creative vehicle. And it’s just the beginning—we’re looking forward to seeing the lips pop up in a lot more places, making the daily drudge brighter with a colourful injection of KIIS.”

Network 10 Axes Gladiators

Alas, 10's Gladiators has gone as quickly as it came. Should make for a very wild garage sale, however.
