Huggies hijacks olympics with Baby Championships

August 21, 2012 at 12:21 by Bridget Comments

Huggies Korea takes on Pampers (official olympic sponsors) with this YouTube/UGC campaign “Baby Championships“.  Babies and cats have always been top of the charts for UGC.  It’s interesting to see a brand transform what is pretty bland UGC content into something that’s shareable.  The Baby Championships builds on the Baby Translator platform which ran last Christmas with a similar concept (think santa helpers instead of sports commentators) and another campaign ran in Israel around the Euro 2012 - “Go Pro” (Agency Mccann Digital Israel).

There has been a big push on dynamic and real time advertising (old spiceskittles rainbow updater) and now Huggies tackles UGC.  Mums can send in their baby video and in return they get back a pretty slick ‘official baby championship’ video.  It’s the (olympic) commentary that makes it more interesting to a broader audience and shareworthy.

I’m sure Korean Mums will love it.  Currently, the video views are not high for the Youtube channel but I guess time will tell.

Here’s the Pamper’s ad than ran in the UK.
