Zombie Preparedness, First Zombie Protest

Agency Network: 
October 2011


Westlake wanted to grow its younger adult customer base but struggled to connect with younger adults, who have a one-stop-shopping habit of returning to the same big box stores for hardware needs. They knew they would need to update the brand’s tone and look a little to connect with this demographic, but didn’t want to lose the brand’s core—centered on expert assistance and friendly service. To reach this goal, Bozell pitched a social media campaign for the Halloween season about zombies.
