Isobar executes online flash mob for Reebok

MUMBAI: Aegis Media‘s full service digital agency Isobar has conceptualised and executed an online campaign labelled ‘Flex a Move‘ for sportswear and fitness brand Reebok India. The campaign was carried out with objective of getting the brands‘ 1.5 million Facebook community to join the fitness revolution.

Reebok India launched the online flash mob, which is basically a dancing feat created for the fans, by the fans and from the fans. The video acted as an engagement platform that encouraged the fans to follow five pre-defined steps and upload their own dancing videos over a period of a month. On 1 May, a synchronised repertoire of all these videos was aired on the Reebok India Facebook page, giving birth to an online flash mob.

Isobar India director Gopa Kumar said, "We wanted to reinforce the philosophy of RealFlex in an innovative way and create an engagement platform for the fans. Hence, the idea of the first-ever online flash mob. This activity was also used as a platform to communicate and encourage fans to join the fitness revolution. The response from the fans has been outstanding, to say the least."

Since the launch of the campaign, Reebok India has grown by more than 100,000 fans and has collected more than 250 dancing videos in three weeks.

Another digital initiative launched as a part of the campaign is an application on Facebook, through which fans can create their virtual fitness avatar to start a daily fitness regime for the avatar and the real user. The virtual avatar does a set of 14 different exercises, which helps the user follow a strict toning and calories burning regimen. The fixed workout schedule followed by the avatar is advised by a Reebok-certified fitness instructor and is targeted to help a user burn up to 200 calories in a 20-30-minute workout.

Recently, Isobar was recognised as the Facebook Preferred Marketing Developer in six markets worldwide, including the United Kingdom, Finland, Hungary, Poland, Norway and the United States, the company said.
