Diesel: Your Runaway Jeans

Diesel: Your Runaway Jeans

Unlike many online dating profiles, data doesn’t lie. And it tells us this: every single day, in the world of online dating, there are 5 million matches. One million of those turn into actual face to face dates. Now, how many of these first dates end up in beautiful romantic endeavors or at least in half-decent acts of…love? Exactly.  

But worry not, Diesel is here to help. For those of us who’ve been trapped into first dates we wished we could have teleported out of, now there’s JoggJeans, the denim made to run away from bad dates.

Inspired by the internet’s most unsuccessful short love stories, Diesel made an online film that showcases these jeans as the go-to outfit for romantic encounters.

In it, a guy goes on a dating streak, meeting all kinds of characters. From ice queens, to a man named Monika who (you’ve probably guessed this already) looks nothing like his profile picture.

The film is just a part of a global integrated campaign created by Publicis Italy including print, OOH, e-commerce, series of local activations, and hyper targeted social media content that aim to inform and equip serial daters with the right gear to escape.

For example, online shoppers in a rush will have access to same-day, VERY express shipping for free as long as they can prove they have a date on the same day. In selected stores, there are rental stations where one can return the Joggjeans in 24 hours and not get charged if the date didn’t require running away.

18-Year Wait Is Now Over, Britney Spears is Finally Here

18-Year Wait Is Now Over, Britney Spears is Finally Here

Hate her or love her, whether she sings or tumbles, or even when she shaves her head off, she’d still be right back here again, on the stage – unbruised, undefeated – with a single beam spotlight all over her.

Britney, no matter what she does, will still be the same woman who gave us reasons to untiringly rewind our cassette tapes using pencils, to dance in school halls after every bell, and to sing Lucky inside the shower, with eyes closed in a dramatic wall slide drama.

Today, the Philippines celebrates the coming of a queen. Let’s take a quick look back on Britney’s rollercoaster life – from Disney to Manila.

December 2, 1981 – Britney was born

1993 – She became part of the Mickey Mouse Club with Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, and Ryan Gosling

2002 – Britney ended up her 3-year relationship with Justin Timberlake. Same year she starred in Crossroads Movie. The flop movie and JT breakup made her a bit crazier than ever.

The Crazy Britney

2004 – Britney shocked the world with an even sexier album – My Prerogative. Also in 2004, Brit married his childhood sweetheart Jason Alexander. And as if the shocking news weren’t enough, she divorced him in whopping, record-breaking 55th hours after their wedding

More, more from Brit. In 2004, she dated her dancer and eventually ended up as her husband – Kevin Federline.

2007 – Britney shaved her head after getting out of rehab for just a day. Prior to shaving and rehab, she lost her aunt due to cancer. 2007 hasn’t been good to Brit. She was checked into more rehab facilities and lost custody to her kids.

Also, the sloppy MTV opening number happened.

In 2008, her comeback hit, Piece of Me got her 3 major awards in MTV. She won Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Video of the Year.

The comeback was overwhelming that HIMYM guesting got the show it’s highest rating mark during the time. She was also named by Guinness as the youngest female American to have 5 albums at Number 1.

2013, she released another hit, Work Bitch. It topped the charts on its debut.
