Due to the conservative nature Koreans feel uncomfortable with condoms in their pockets. But we found that everyone carries an USB. By making and distributing USBs with condom-shaped lids, we want to familiarize condoms to Koreans by having them slip the condom-shaped lid on to the USB every time they insert the USB into the computer. This will remind about condom whenever they need to insert something. If a user doesn’t use the lid and insert the USB, a virus pop-up alert comes on. But when you insert the USB with the lid, the user can use one’s computer safely.
Every year, 15 billion safe and handy contraceptives are consumed worldwide: the condom. Nevertheless it is quite intriguing to find out that 70% of the South Korean couples do not use condoms, making us the least condom-consuming nation among OECD countries. As a condom manufacturer in Korea, Kunhwa Pharmaceuticals intention is to promote awareness of using condoms, and to increase condom use rates.
Putting the USB cap to protect from virus is very similar to the property of condoms. Also, through the process of using the USB condom, people will be aware of the importance of condoms more effectively and entertainingly.
It was not just an ordinary condom promoting advertisement, but it was a creative idea to use USB as an advertising media that spread around in the SNS, which raised the awareness of Kunwha Pharmaceutical. Moreover, three months after distributing the Condom-USB, the condom usage grew by 4.2% and it also boosted KunwhaPharmaceutical product sales by 23% as well.
