US Creative Work of the Week: Lee Jeans combats manspreading and kimono trapping

The Lee Jeans campaign was chosen as the US Creative Work of the Week

Lee Jeans puts the mobility of its denim on full display in its 'Don’t just move. Move your Lee.' Campaign, created by Austin-based agency of record, GSD&M.

The campaign includes three TV spots that speak to modern consumers, with hip, young subjects in everyday, topical (and sometimes impractical) situations.

In one, a woman on the subway combats a guy who is clearly encroaching onto her seat by ‘manspreading.’ She one-ups him by hoisting her jean-clad leg over his so he gets the point. Another finds a woman who has her kimono caught in a taxi door chasing the cab down the street to get her garment free. A third finds a dog walker leaping and flipping acrobatically to untangle many leashes.

The campaign is meant to remind customers that Lee is the perfect jean for everyday movements for all demographics – equate with the new messaging that Lee Jeans are not only stylish, but freedom-inducing products that helps consumers move forward, accomplish, and progress.

For its confident swagger and pointed sales objective, The Drum’s readers voted the campaign the US Creative Work of the Week.
