DDB Canada, K-Y: Let’s Talk About Lubricant, Baby

DDB Canada has a new campaign for K-Y Brand lubricant called “Warm Up To Love Again.” As the title suggests, this campaign is targeted at couples having intimacy issues, rather than continually fapping, hormonal teenage boys (another key lubricant demographic). More specifically, the campaign speaks to “women, who want to stay connected with their partner through enjoyable physical and emotional intimacy, but who have not been comfortable introducing a personal lubricant into their relationship.”

DDB manages to do this with lighthearted humor, important because of the awkwardness of broaching the issue of personal lubrication. In each spot, a woman witnesses her (conspicuously unsexy) partner performing an everyday task in slow-motion, while an R&B slow jam plays in the background. The idea is that K-Y “makes physical intimacy with your partner so comfortable and easy, women will view sex, and their partners in a whole new light,” explains agency ECD, Denise Rossetto. So, suddenly seeing her partner starting up the lawnmower or do push-ups is enough to turn each of the women in these spots on, culminating into the campaign’s “Warm Up To Love Again” tagline. DDB keeps things short and to the point, with the trio of adverts each clocking in at 15 seconds. The campaign debuted online on December 12th, and will make its television premiere next month. Credits and “Sit-Ups” after the jump. Read more

Short Film Projects Scary Look at Future of Technology

What if people only interacted through text messaging? They could still meet up and walk around together, but is our world headed for non-verbal communication ruled by Autocorrect? These are the questions at the root of “The Dystopianest Dystopia Ever,” a short film written and directed by freelance copywriter Jon Murray, who most recently worked at Leo Burnett, Toronto.

In the short film, a guy and a girl meet outdoors with cell phones in hand, ready to talk by texting. People no longer communicate with eye contact or use their vocal cords, but the guy has his epiphany that will undermine the “dystopianest dystopia.” If our future is headed in that direction, doctors who treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome should be patting themselves on the back.

The video is only two minutes, but it packs an efficient punch. And even if you don’t care about the future of technology, it’s a well-done creative project that you can watch for free, so why not support? Credits after the jump.
