Uber Eats has launched a new campaign in Japan promoting its late-night delivery with QR code-printed pajamas through a partnership with creative agency Special Australia.
The QR PJs turn your bedtime nightwear into an easy way to order food late at night with scannable pajamas printed with QR codes that link straight to food on the Uber Eats app.
“For the people of Japan, our late-night offering is a huge advantage we have in the market,” said Ai Suzuki, senior brand manager, Uber Eats Japan.
“However it’s always been a difficult differentiator to talk about. So we’ve been working on innovations in this space that are as unique as the product, to let people know that we are here well into the night, even after midnight.”
To build popularity, the specially-designed PJs were featured in key online destinations where Japan’s night owls spend their time, including the use of Twitch streamers to interact in real-time with consumers.
“Bridging the physical and the digital is a fun place to play for brands,” said Laurent Marcus, head of technology at Special.
“Experimenting where these worlds collide to create a utility for your customers – and delivering a brand message at the same time – is really unconventional, but proving rewarding for Uber Eats. Plus, I love anything that brings a late-night miso snack closer.”
