Speed Stick keeps you cool (and dry!) under pressure.
Due May 11th, 2012 -
It’s ok to freak out, guys. We all do it. As long as you give the impression that you can handle it on the outside. And that’s where Speed Stick Power comes in. Its all-day protection gives you the confidence that you’ll stay dry on the outside, even if you’re stressing on the inside. So no matter what, you can step up and own the situation.
Colgate-Palmolive Company, the makers of Speed Stick Power Antiperspirant, is looking for video submissions that will help build on the launch of its new advertising campaign, “Don’t sweat it. Handle it”. The goal here is to utilize the Tongal community to generate new, engaging videos for use around the web.
Videos should have a fairly simple structure and feature a 20-something guy as the hero. There are two main pieces of storytelling:
1) The Tension Moment: show a simple story of a sweat inducing moment (it’s more of an emotional, “freak-out” type sweat, but it could also active type of sweat). Then use the hero’s inner monologue to make it clear what he’s thinking, but on the outside, he looks calm and cool.
2) The Win: as a resolution, show how our hero guy can “handle it” in that situation and succeeds in the context of the situation.
