Challenge

Remember the Unicorn? The one that poops rainbow ice cream? Some of us can't forget Squatty Potty's landmark campaign from 2015. But eight years later, Squatty Potty's messaging and brand are still based around the same viral spot. Squatty came to Colormatics to create a new campaign focused on rebranding to a new audience and converting sales for the holiday season.

The Happy Tummy Tour

Approach

Colormatics began this project with market research and surveys to pinpoint the best target audience and messaging strategy within that market. The study also increased understanding of the product's place in the market and the category's position overall. Informed from this research, the creative team developed an approach that was…unconventional.

Execution

Understanding that there was no way to recreate the magic of the Unicorn, Colormatics created a new campaign based on the same frenetic and off-the-wall energy of the original Unicorn video. The new campaign, titled "Squatty Potty: The Ride," features Taylor, a young woman experiencing toilet issues, as she goes on the "Happy Tummy Tour" ride with digestive health specialist Ellen. Meeting with a cast of colorful characters, Taylor learns about how sitting affects digestive health and how the Squatty Potty toilet stool can help.

Results

We came out strong for Black Friday & Cyber Monday, driving brand awareness and conversions. We came, we saw, and we conquered the digital space, spreading brand awareness like wildfire and turning clicks into conversions faster than you can say "add to cart"! 

The numbers speak for themselves: 200+ MILLION IMPRESSIONS, 1+ MILLION CLICKS, and a mind-blowing 4 ROAS. 

We didn't just focus on the bottom line; we crafted a holistic narrative that educated and entertained consumers every step of the way. 

Plus we just won a Golden Addy for Best Internet Commercial Campaign in the Film, Video & Sound category at the American Advertising Awards.

Conclusion

Colormatics' campaign for Squatty Potty showcased their abilities to use careful strategy, off-the-wall creativity, and meticulous production to craft a new campaign as innovative as the brand's past.
