Rapunzel for Pantene

A fun guerrilla campaign to promote Pantene Anti-Breakage Shampoo has just been deployed in Toronto, Canada.

The campaign uses enormous braids a la Rapunzel that dangle from buildings, complete with a dummy of a man climbing them. The obvious nod to the well-known fairytale is used to demonstrate the outstanding effect of the shampoo which promises hair so strong that a man can use it as a rope to climb.

I give it zero for originality, but two thumbs up for execution and the ability to turn heads and deliver its message, which is what really counts.

The hairy campaign was created by Grey Canada agency, with creative director Rick Kemp and art director Nicole Ellerton. Swayze Props and Sets was used to build the prop and production was by Full Serve Productions.
