Amazon’s Shows are empowering says Droga5 in its first campaign
Amazon’s Prime Video claims it can help no matter what your situation is be it standing up for yourself, commanding the respect you deserve or even wanting to make out in public.
In the streaming service’s first work from Droga5 London since the agency won the account earlier this year, we see normal workaday types undergoing gradual transformations as they make their way through seasons of hit Prime Video shows.
Vikings, for example, teaches an office worker to push back against office politics, pen stealers and queue cutters in her life, eventually becoming so bold that she screams like a banshee over a cup of coffee.
A mild-mannered dad picking up after his kids stumbles across Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, which slowly turns him into a highly attuned man of action with the honed skills and situational awareness needed to handle extreme acts of precision.
In the time-travel show Outlander, a couple’s dying romance gets an injection of lust that embarrasses onlookers.
In the same vein, Lucifer inspires a young man living with his domineering mother to go against the grain and the rules she has set out by wearing black clothing and closing the door when a girl enters his room.
The goal of the campaign is to show how our favourite shows evoke emotions in us rather than just hype on content and entertainment.
Droga5 London Chief Creative Officer David Kolbusz said as one of the biggest distributors of content, it would be easy for a brand like Amazon to get caught up in the game of marketing one-upmanship around breadth and volume of films and TV shows.
Kolbusz tells Adweek. “But the world doesn’t need another sizzle reel. It’s a credit to their understanding of why people watch that they invested in a campaign that strays from the category norm and delves into the psychology of viewership.”
The spots will on the air in the U.K. and Germany, and also online.
