F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi Launches ‘It’s Runderful’ for Mizuno

By Erik Oster Comment

F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi launched a new campaign for Mizuno, entitled “It’s Runderful,” which brings the brand back to TV with its first broadcast ads since 2008.

(McKinney, which was previously US AOR for the client, resigned the account in January.)

The pair of 30-second ads use two different scenarios to introduce the “It’s Runderful” platform and tagline. In “Baby Carriage,” viewers are presented with what initially looks like a baby carriage speeding down a hill out of control. Viewed from the first person, the carriage is about to approach an intersection and imminent danger when it is revealed that it is, in fact, being pushed by a running mother. The reveal is slow, as the camera focuses on her shoes and slowly pans up. “Signs,” meanwhile, presents a pair of running buddies, as they ignore signs such as those informing them not to turn and to slow down. The broadcast spots are supported by print, digital, OOH and point-of-sale initiatives.

“We want to show the wonderful world of running, its characteristics, and curiosities,” explained Eduardo Lima, executive creative director at F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi, in a statement. “It is a very rich universe that goes way beyond suffering, waking up early, overcoming obstacles. Running is cool, it’s fun. Interesting things happen while you are running.”
