South Korea – A new advert from Reebok is getting commuters on their feet in an underground battle royale.
The campaign, marking the revival of the Reebok classic pump sneaker, is an attempt to raise awareness and tackle South Koreans’ sedentary lifestyles. Commuters were selected to pit their wits against fellow travellers by reacting to lit Pump logos on the platform’s walls – whoever scored the highest was then rewarded with a new pair of trainers. The campaign, created by digital agency Innored, turned the neutral space of the subway into a fun battleground, transforming a situation in which people ‘sit around waiting for their train’ into a riotous experience that perfectly captures the fun fitness ethos of the brand.
