“This is a great moment for the ‘Van Heusen Institute of Style’,” said Mike Kelly, Executive Vice President of Marketing for PVH. “Collaborating with Funny Or Die for the ‘Institute of Style’ is the perfect way to bring together sports, style and humor, three things that resonate with our target consumer.”
In September, Stafford was added to the “Van Heusen Institute of Style” campaign, as the latest student to go from style “trainee” to “graduate.” In this first-of-its kind video for the brand, Stafford passes on the lessons he learned from Young and Rice to an everyday ‘schlub’ as he learns what it takes to dress the part to land a small business loan.
“Matthew, Steve and Jerry were naturals shooting this video,” said Chris Bruss, Vice President of Branded Entertainment for Funny Or Die. “This is a great example of a brand understanding how to connect with their consumer through humor and working with our creative team to create both entertaining and engaging content.”
A teaser commercial spot, designed to look like a feature film trailer, debuted on NBC’s November 18 broadcast of Sunday Night Football, driving fans to VanHeusen.com to view the full video and explore the “Institute of Style” site. Additional promotion includes distribution across a variety of sport and lifestyle sites, a dedicated microsite page on the Funny Or Die website and promotion surrounding the video on both Funny Or Die and PVH’s owned sites.
The “Van Heusen Institute of Style” campaign has been activated on multiple other touch points, including point-of-sale materials at participating retailers, and on-air and print advertisements, which will run across ESPN, NBC Sports, the NFL Network, GQ, ESPN The Magazine, among others.
