RTO+P Launches ‘Thank-o-Matic 5,000,000′ for Planet Fitness

Planet Fitness

Today Red Tettemer O’Connell + Partners launched “Thank-o-Matic 5,000,000″ to celebrate Planet Fitness reaching 5 million members.

Visitors to the website can enter their information to receive a personalized thank you video and enter into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a variety of prizes. Each day, five people will be selected to win $500. At the end of the promotion, “five grand prizes will be awarded including: Mazda 5, a five-day cruise, a five-day trip to Hawaii, 50” smart TV or a five year PF Black Card membership.” The promotion will run from today until March 20th and is open to both members and non-members.

As you may recall, Planet Fitness made a name for itself as a “Judgement Free Zone,” free of the “lunks” (their term for sweaty bros who grunt while they lift weights) typical of traditional gyms, and their recent advertising has continued in that vein. Stick around for their most recent spot, “Pilatatumba,” along with credits for ”Thank-o-Matic 5,000,000,” after the jump. Read more

Young Hockey Players Can ‘Storm the Centre’ with Social Media, Skill

Screen shot 2013-10-11 at 2.04.53 PM

From the very Canadian, but not Canadien, news bureau: Red Tettemer O’Connell + Partners and Under Armour are launching a youth hockey contest tomorrow, October 12, called “Storm the Centre.” Two teams of skating youngsters will eventually win a chance to play at the Air Canada Centre, home of the Toronto Maple Leafs. I want to spell it center, but it’s for the kids, so I’ll keep it Canadian.

The contest consists of three stages – social media engagement, teamwork, and finally, hockey skills. These sort of pee-wee competitions happen all the time, but adding a social media component is a cool twist from RTO+P, especially in a hockey-crazed country, where presumably, families will claw for the chance to see their kids play on a pro rink. The details of the challenges haven’t been released yet, but you can check team eligibility and sign up here. To all the little Charlie Conways out there, have fun.

Credits after the jump.
