‘Samsung Within’ stories go big on digital OOH
By M4G Bureau - December 14, 2018
Times Square visitors get a taste of the interactive digital campaign around the brand philosophy of ‘Do What You Can’t’
Samsung has launched the newest installment of its episodic consumer-focused ad campaign ‘Samsung Within’, an ongoing interactive web and mobile experience series depicting Samsung’s legacy as a company: its philosophy, the meaning of its name, and its cultural drive for pursuing relentless innovation and how its latest smartphone – the Galaxy Note9 – was built based on Samsung’s motto ‘Do What You Can’t’.
The web campaign takes viewers on a journey through Samsung’s “why,” using stunning interactive design and offering viewers a more immersive experience. Starting November 1, the brand began promoting the web experience in the most trafficked areas of the world. Towering ads invite the public to see it for themselves in New York City’s Times Square and Samsung 837, the company’s flagship experiential marketing centre of excellence in New York’s Meatpacking district. The ads are also expected to run in Russia, Spain and Italy.
The brand uses the opportunity to highlight the fact that the first 3G call from the summit of Mount Everest was made on a Samsung Galaxy S2, or that a Samsung phone was the first commercial phone to assist NASA with the launch of The Atlantis. Clicking through the interactive web experience or watching the display ads in a city square, the ‘Extreme Conditions’ chapter of ‘Samsung Within’ takes viewers to the virtual top of Mt. Everest, depicting the story of how Samsung doesn’t just build technology with the minimum requirements, but always pushes the limits to go above and beyond in quality and durability so its products can perform in almost any situation you might need them in. The ‘Samsung Within’ campaign is a projection of this Samsung philosophy of relentless exploration and innovation while building technology.
