Choose to be happy

Not all mobile phone companies are bad guys, says Koodo.

People rarely seem happy when they talk about their phone company. “Screw [insert company here]” is one of the most common sentiments on our Facebook feed. But Koodo thinks their customers are different — and they’re telling the world. In a new brand platform developed by its new agency Camp Jefferson, Koodo is emphasizing the happiness their customers feel with bright colours, trippy animations, peppy music and our old masked wrestling friend El Tabador. The idea that happiness isn’t just kittens and rainbows though: it’s also dancing, music, pulling off that perfect parallel parking job and the feeling of grass between your toes. The brand has also launched its “Happy Hub,” compiling content from the new campaign (some of which you can see below), as well as three different mobile games, if you believe (just like us) that wasting your time and looking at bright colours is the only way to feel happy on your morning transit ride.
