Mr Clean Cleaner of Your Dreams
Procter & Gamble is running “Cleaner of Your Dreams”, an advertising campaign launched during the 2017 Super Bowl NFL final. The campaign features an animated version of Mr Clean using Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and more in the shower, on the floor and in the kitchen, watched on by a highly impressed woman. Finally Mr Clean morphs back into the woman’s husband to receive her passionate expression of appreciation on the couch. Consumers are invited to share a photo of the cleaner of their dreams via social media using hashtag #MrClean.
Leo Burnett Toronto creative director Heather Chambers explains, “For years, women have done the majority of the cleaning. And even though today, more and more men are sharing in the responsibility, the thought of ‘there’s nothing sexier than a man who cleans’ still resonates for a lot of women”.
“Mr. Clean – both the man and his products – has always stood for toughness and versatility,” said Martin Hettich, Vice President of P&G Home Care North America. “In his first-ever Super Bowl spot, Mr. Clean is showing off his strong and sexy side, and hopefully even inspiring men across America to pick up a mop and bucket themselves”.
