2019 // GLOBAL BROADCAST
Dove Men+Care was about to launch it's first ever SportCare range in early 2019, arriving
super late to a market already overcrowded by competitors.
So, when Dove tasked us to create a global launch campaign that would entice their 30-something,
non-high performance, non-super athlete, unmotivated by gainzzz, not thirsting for wins, target
market to give their new products a try, we knew we’d have to break through the sea of the same
formulaic sporty ads and resonate with men on a more realistic level.
Turns out many normal guys aren’t playing sports for the love of competition or winning, but for
the camaraderie of being part of a team and being a reliable figure for their friends and family.
So instead of championing self-motivated, performance-obsessed pros like every other brand,
we decided to flip the script and cast real active men playing supporting roles in the lives of
others on and off the field. These dudes were real coaches, fathers, and team coaches.
(Also seasoned shower takers.)
Cue the CARE!
