Harnessing Popular Culture to Optimize Brand Messages for Viral Distribution

How To: Go beyond traditional messaging avenues to put your brand in the stream of consumers’ conversations

Schick engaged Edelman Digital and BuzzFeed to create a culturally relevant social media campaign. “Shave the World” and “Razorbombing” encouraged consumers to engage with the brand in a way that tied into major memes of the moment such as planking.
