We launched this film as a Facebook campaign targeting Indonesia and Thailand. Before we seeded the film, we seeded the interest. We posted teasers that suggested what was coming. When we eventually posted the film, our audience was primed for the reveal and instinctively drawn to watch it amidst the barrage of other online content. As Indonesia and Thailand are mobile-heavy markets, it was integral to harness Facebook’s Native Video feature as the video gets pride of place in Facebook’s newsfeed compared to conventionally embedded videos. Sponsored stories were also utilised to encourage reach and awareness. With minimal paid media support, we planned to ignite the most effective medium out there - couples themselves. Our content struck a chord with not only men, but women too. Engaging them on a topic they both could relate to naturally triggered them to start conversations and become instant spokespeople of the film.
Our task was to get people talking about Heineken’s UEFA Champions League sponsorship, focussing on Indonesia and Thailand. Conventionally this would conjure glorious football imagery that’s out of reach in everyday life - players, trophies, etc. Instead we disrupted with a challenge closer to men’s hearts. While women may not comprehend their men’s addiction to football, they generally let men have their way as long as it doesn’t cost them anything. As a brand, Heineken champions ingenuity. We wanted to prove that men are just as inventive in getting their way with their football fanaticism even at the expense of something their partners care about. In this case, their home furnishing. We filmed couples coming across ugly, overpriced stadium seats at a furniture store and asked men to persuade their partners to buy them for the home. The first to succeed would win tickets to the UEFA Champions League Final.
