Ad of the Day: Lowe’s Rolls Out 8 More Charming and Useful ‘Fix in Six’ Vines

DIY tips never looked so good

Headshot of Tim Nudd

Is Lowe's "Fix in Six" the best-ever use of Vine by a marketer? You can ponder that question over more delightful creative from the campaign, as BBDO New York has released eight new looping videos in the series.

The stop-motion shorts—which have won the retailer its first Cannes Lion (a bronze in Cyber) as well as a silver Clio, best in show at the Mashies Awards and various other honors—use the six-second format to show simple DIY tricks you can try at home. The craft is great, the tricks are useful, and the whole campaign is a welcome counterpoint to the traditional view of Vine marketing—which is that it almost has to look slapdash to be authentic.

Check out the new videos below. By the end, you'll be asking yourself: Mayonnaise, really?
