Stealing the Spotlight

Stealing the Spotlight

In 2017 'Borg vs. McEnroe' world premiered. The sports brand Björn Borg, founded by tennis player Björn Borg created and designed all the clothing for the film. To highlight this, the brand also released 'The Borg Signature Collection''. A collection with design based on retro clothing from the film. 

To launch the collection we wanted to take advantage of the hype of the Hollywood film and tie the collection as close to it as possible, by being visible in the same media sports as the film.


Watch the two cases below or scroll through the campaign.

We created a cinema ad, that ended where the first scene in 'Borg vs. McEnroe' begins. You can watch the case below. 


To tie The Borg Signature Collection as close to 'Borg vs. McEnroe' as possible, we shot our models like they were working behind the scenes of the movie.


When Borg vs. McEnroe premiered, our ads were everywhere the movie was...

...From streets close to cinemas, to movie magazines to ticket websites.


And as the first brand ever, we were on Stockholms most iconic cinema. On a spot usually reserved for movie promotion.

By using the hype from the film, the collection sold out both in store and online. Brand awareness increased by 150% and the collection was even requested by Lady Gaga.
