Wieden+Kennedy Tokyo gets excited about Laforet Grand Bazaar using "impatient typo"

LaForet 2.jpgLaforet Grand Bazar is the biggest sale event of Laforet Harajuku which takes place twice a year. During this sale, numerous young people wait in a queue before store opening to get sale items up to 90% off and sometimes the entry gets restricted because of the oversized crowd.

W+K Tokyo has produced a campaign visual and a TV commercial which expresses the excitement towards the sale with the idea of the "impatient typo". The long-awaited Grand Bazar is coming. This is something you need to make a note about in your calendar and post about on SNS. In modern society, our daily life is accompanied by typing words. Many people have experienced making typos when you get too excited. So by using such as "impatient typo" W+K are aiming to express the excitement and promote expectation towards the Grand Bazaar.

The campaign linked with this visual will take place during the sale period, from July 27th Thursday to 31st Monday. In the TV commercial, Pop-up windows of "Laforet Grand Bazar" typed in various devises such as smartphone and PC etc. spread out randomly and fill up the screen.
