A New Film for Kimberly-Clark Brand Turma da Mônica Diapers

SÃO PAULO, August 25, 2009 – Babies who wear Turma da Mônica diapers know how to be charming from a very early age. And they even perform a serenade to spread their charm. That’s the the premise of the new film created by Ogilvy & Mather Brasil, and already being aired on Brazil’s major TV networks.

kimberlyclark, diapers, turmadamomica, brasil Entitled “Serenade,” the film is accompanied by a jingle that shows the contrast in the daily lives of babies who wear regular diapers with those who wear Turma da Mônica diapers. “It’s so hard to sing with this leak. And the Velcro rubbing against the skin is a nightmare. But I’m dry as always, feeling totally free to hug you. With Turma da Mônica diapers, the buttocks are just fine and then I say: buttocks, you’re free to breathe,” goes the song.

The last scene of the film shows a couple of babies in their cradle, sending us kisses and accompanied by the sentence “Breathe buttocks.” The communication strategy highlights one of the main differentiated features of Turma da Mônica diapers, which are the first on the market with breathable technology, in addition to the soft Velcro and elastic waistband, providing babies with 12-hour protection. 

Kimberly-Clark Brasil, manufacturer of the product, invested R$7 million in the campaign, whose objective is to position Turma da Mônica diapers as the best option on the Brazilian diapers market. The brand has a 24% market share in terms of value.

The film “Serenade” is produced by Margarida Filmes, a company of INK Group. It is directed by Ricardo “Gordo” Carvalho, who highlights the advantage to use the camera Red, which captures the babies continuously, without a single gesture or unusual scene being left out, which could impose some limitations to the filming on film stock.
