The Campaign

V Skills. 24 life skills printed on 14 million V cans. We created a suite of non-ad 'how-to' videos that demonstrated our brand promise in a fresh, relevant way. By teaming up with popular content creators and worked without censorship or shameless product placement, to bring our Millennial audience a series of useful and entertaining tutorials that spoke their language.

Creative Execution

In Australia, the most crucial skill under the sun is not getting burned by the sun. So we worked with up and coming comedy troupe Aunty Donna to help teach millennials how to apply sunscreen. All the sunscreen. All over each other. Repeatedly. Yep, things got weird.

Applying Sunscreen received over 300,00 views. Part of the campaign that saw Over 30 million video views of skills content globally. 5.5 million YouTube impressions and reached over 1.7 million 18-24 year olds on Facebook, accounting for approximately 65% of the total Facebook audience for this demographic. With Facebook penetration recorded at 99% for this age bracket, this would mean that almost every 18-24 year old in Australia would have seen at least one V Skills video. 1060% increase in engagement with the V brand on Facebook, with the sentiment towards the campaign overwhelmingly positive. Most importantly, sales jumped 11% over the campaign period.

An essential life skill tutorial taken to the extreme (and maybe even further) by a comedy troupe.

Whilst the brand appeals to Millennials who are frequent drinkers, light drinkers are a bit more skeptical. To them, energy drinks are a necessary evil, so we needed to show them just how necessary we could be. So we decided to live our brand promise of being 'The Massive Hit That Improves You A Bit' by creating content that would marginally increase their day to day skills.
