Well, W+K has certainly moved on from the “Everything is like Facebook” approach they used in 2012 to launch their relationship with the social media giant. The agency’s newest campaign demonstrates how Facebook can facilitate events like a couch ski race.
The “Couch Skis” spot (featured above) shows a group of youngsters getting the word out about their winter “couch race” via Facebook. A large group of friends cheer as the two couches speed down the snowy hill, followed by the tagline, “Whatever the event you always have a team.” The new approach makes a lot more sense than the one W+K employed early on, and they certainly make couch racing look like fun.
Another spot in W+K’s new campaign shows how Facebook can help you find the right tango instructor, working backwards chronologically from a successful lesson to a friend’s suggestion of the instructor on Facebook. A third spot shows a series of wedding photo and poses the question, “Why have one photographer when you can have a hundred?”
The new ads have been shared by Facebook on YouTube, and, of course, on Facebook — where, Mashable reports the social network has disseminated the videos in users’ News Feeds using Promoted Posts. There are currently no plans to air the new spots on TV according to the site. Stick around for “Tango” and “Photographer” after the jump.
