Agency: Grey UK
Following the ultimate road trip along Route 66, global print technology specialist Brother UK launched their first UK advert August 22. The campaign, an investment of £1.5m, follows the ‘ultimate road-test’ of Brother’s P-touch labelling machines on a 10 day road-trip along the length of America’s Route 66.
The campaign was produced by Grey UK and is built on the tagline ‘labels are powerful – what does yours say?’ Route 66, an iconic global label itself, provided a unique way to amplify the theme of labelling and explore the versatility of the product range. Filmed in just 10 days, across 10 locations and covering 3,000 miles, the 19-strong team identified, interviewed and observed 12 people living and working along Route 66. School teachers, pupils, cowboys, and even exotic dancers discussed the meaning behind the label of Route 66 and how they would label themselves.
