Unilever-owned brand Vaseline has partnered with Ogilvy in a new campaign inspired by the need for greater inclusivity within society.
“Lips can speak words that have the power to change thoughts, opinions, and even the future,” the brand said in a release. “Beyond bringing dry, cracked lips back to health, Vaseline wants to give lips the ability to say the most powerful words without limits.
The campaign, for Vaseline Lip Therapy, features a diverse range of lips each speaking of being welcomed, respected, and treated equitably, regardless of where they come from, how they look, or what they believe in.
“What started as a ‘small budget’ brief, but with a big client ambition, led to a campaign we feel very proud of,” said David Dahan, Ogilvy’s Worldwide Managing Director, Unilever, and Managing Director, [email protected]
“This work is a reminder that great ideas only come to life when they are shared and when client and agency teams work hand in hand with trust, passion, and determination. Vaseline is an amazing brand led by amazing people; we will not stop until we have given them the unmissable work they deserve. It is just the beginning!”
“We have partnered with Ogilvy to create a memorable campaign that captures the spirit of our brand as well as creates awareness for our range of lip care products. Inclusivity is at the heart of this work, and an important part of the Vaseline Healing Project which is present in over 70 countries, bringing access to skin health care to 15 million more people,” said Louis Piereck, Global Brand Director for Vaseline.
The film spans digital channels in the US and the UK and an OOH campaign in Singapore.
