Goodby, Adobe Go ‘Woo Woo’ Over New (Fake) Social Platform

By Kiran Aditham 

In case you missed its premiere during this past weekend’s U.S. Open broadcast (and who can blame you, what with World Cup debut weekend and all–nice scheduling, PGA), here’s the new GS&P-created spot for Adobe that introduces us to something called “Woo Woo.” What is it, you ask? Well, it’s a social platform–albeit a fictional one–that seems to highlight just how flash-in-the-plan the social networking world is and how marketers can ultimately get lost in the chaos. The :60 effort, which also bowed at Cannes, not only hypes the Adobe Marketing Cloud but marks the brand’s first network TV ad in over a decade. According to folks on the Spy line, Razorfish San Francisco is helping out on Adobe’s return to network television by building the “launch” website around Woo Woo (coming soon, apparently) and running its Twitter feed. While there might never be an actual Woo Woo, at least this spot brings back some fond memories of our long-since-buried MySpace and Friendster accounts. Credits after the jump.
