Background

In 2011 Dutch retail company HEMA introduced a new product: the Mega Push-Up Bra. Compared to brands such as Hunkemöller (Dutch) and Victoria's Secret, HEMA is a relatively small player in the lingerie market. That's why we had to come up with a clever campaign that could compete with these brands and their much larger advertising budgets. Our goal was to create something that would soon become 'the talk of the town'. Something that would get enough press coverage to help us match up to the big players.

Objective

To generate awareness, traffic as well as sales for HEMA's new mega push-up bra and to create something that would become 'the talk of the town'.
