As Mother’s Day approaches, brands are doing their very best to come up with ingenious marketing stunts that are both heartwarming and, hopefully move some product.
One such effort comes from an agency called Lemz Amsterdam, which created a campaign that perfectly captures what is rarely seen: the reactions of people — in this case, mothers — when they open and read a card — in this case, a Hallmark card.
The agency installed a tiny camera and microphone directly into the greeting card which would capture the mom’s reactions. The team then did post-stunt interviews with the moms and their loved ones.
Accompanying this was a TV spot that pulled footage from the stunt. In addition, online pre-rolls and ads as well as social and blogger outreach were employed.
