Brita’s Best Roommate Ever Campaign
Ever opened the fridge to find that someone hasn’t refilled the water…again? Brita took this highly relatable situation and turned it into a brilliant campaign.
They used an interesting and unlikely duo of NBA star Steph Curry and YouTube influencer King Bach to create a surprisingly entertaining campaign.
What was even more interesting is that Brita used their traditional advertising campaign ambassador and paired him up a social creator who had a different, but very large online audience.
This campaign gained a very broad reach and gave a fresh voice to the brand.
The result: According to a Think with Google case study, this brand ambassador x influencer mashup generated “over 2 million views and led to a 2,000% mobile search lift.”
