Camp Jefferson Urges Canadians to ‘Choose Happy’ with Koodo

By Erik Oster Comment

Toronto-based creative agency Camp Jefferson, in conjunction with Quebec market partner K72, launched a campaign for Canadian cell phone company Koodo entitled “Choose Happy.”

The campaign aims to exemplify happiness with a series of broadcast, cinema and online spots, exploring such sure to please subjects as “Kittens & Rainbows,” “Flowers,” “Free Refills” and “Popsicles.” Each ad is a colorful, high energy blast of Internet-fueled happiness, meant to show how customers can “Choose Happy” by opting for Koodo, which was ranked highest in stand alone carrier satisfaction by JD Power’s ranking of Best in Customer Satisfaction. While the campaign title and tagline bring to mind Coca-Cola’s “Choose Happiness,” the approach is completely different.

“A light went off when we realized that our client’s product could be our main media vehicle,” explained Paul Little, executive creative director at Camp Jefferson. “This lead us to create a platform that was built to work in the way we consume media on our smartphones. In essence it’s a tiled, modular system that can be assembled into anything — from multiple units that become TV commercials to individual pieces that act as content to be shared and enjoyed on social channels.”

After all, who doesn’t love kittens and rainbows?
