“Everyone Feels Genki (Energy) with Aussie Beef!” Campaign, 2013
Ten amazing Japanese performers were selected for an online competition, who compete against each other with the famous Aussie Beef hand gesture (which represents the shape of the Aussie Logo) as part of their performance. Consumers judge who has the best “Genki” Pose for the chance to win a holiday to Australia. The performers range from an 80 year old body builder to a young hip hop dancer.
This campaign was created to introduce Aussie Beef to all generations and across genders. The key message is that Aussie Beef comes from a clean, green natural environment and is a source of energy for everyone. The Aussie Beef hand gesture, which represents the shape of the Aussie Beef logo, is already well known among Japanese people over 30 years old, so the campaign leverages this high awareness and recognition, whilst also introducing it to the younger generations through social media and digital channels. Ultimately the aim is to gain increased brand awareness and increased sales of Australian beef.
