Agency: Pereira O’Dell


Today, Midea America Corp. announced the launch of its first-ever cross platform U.S. brand campaign. The creative is centered around the concept of a fictional "Chief Idea Officer" (CIO) played by actor and comedian Sam Richardson of popular TV series "The Afterparty" and "Veep."

Included in the campaign is a 60-second hero spot which debuts Wednesday, June 15 across broadcast streaming platforms and social channels as well as three additional 30-second spots appearing later this June. Each video spot depicts how the company's innovations are solely attributed to pretend Chief Idea Officer, Richardson, who surprisingly appears in customers' living spaces and other settings pointing out every Midea product as "My-Idea" – a twist on the brand's pronunciation.
