EditorTVCs, News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Monday: Leading outdoor brand Kathmandu launched its Summer Never Sleeps campaign today, in partnership with Special New Zealand.

Summer Never Sleeps aims to highlight summer as “a time for spontaneity, inspiring people to venture somewhere new, dive into the unexpected and maximise every opportunity to live their best summer yet, not only during the day but at night too”.

Produced by Special and Scoundrel, the Summer Never Sleeps film forms the foundation of the creative campaign, following a group of friends on their “quirky” summer adventure from night to day, and into night again.

“Summer Never Sleeps is rolling out across TV, digital, social, out of home and PR in NZ and Australia until 19 November.”

The campaign film follows a group of friends on their summer adventure “from night to day, and into night again, as they roast marshmallows, bike off trail, snoop a merman portrait painting, swim fully clothed, dance, march, and row through the night”.

Special ECD Lisa Fedyszyn said: “Summer Never Sleeps builds on Kathmandu’s brand platform – ‘We’re Out There’ – inspiring a new generation to feel the benefits of being outside, and ties into Kathmandu’s purpose to improve the wellbeing of the world through the outdoors.”

Kathmandu’s Summer Never Sleeps campaign is rolling out across TV, digital, social, out of home and PR in New Zealand and Australia from Monday 26 September to Saturday 19 November.

The campaign launches in line with Kathmandu’s Spring/Summer ‘23 collection: a range spanning apparel and gear for men, women and kids, to help people experience the best of summer this year. The range is available in-store and online now (www.kathmandu.co.nz).
